Randy Quaid as the taxi driver drives Zen parables (Is time money - Is time the root of all evil?) into his passenger/protegee in a high-speed, idiosyncratic tour of their city's ethnic coteries. All the boy wants is to dispose of his date's dead dog Jasper and get back to the babe who's so hot she mutters darkly about being a Pressure Cooker: his conventional efforts are continually thwarted. Quaid is respected by the peculiar groups he interests in the dog's corpse and effects, and our one-gloved heroine is much keener on him than on her rather lackluster date. Written by

The character of Jack Cloud was originally scripted as a black Caribbean man and Little Richard was suggested for the role. Whoopi Goldberg was then slated to play Jack before withdrawing from the role. See more »
Although it is sick, different, and just twisted enough to catch peoples attention, I'm mad it's not on DVD. It is one of my favorite movies, probably #6 out of my top ten. My favorite exchanges were between Randy Quaid Frank Whaley like "If money is the root of all evil, then is time the root of all evil? If time stops for no man, who does the root of all evil stop for?" I rated it 9, showing how much I like this movie. It is probably the second funniest movie I've ever seen! I would gladly pay for this on PPV and on DVD and loved it. I just cannot get across to you how much I love this movie...But I'll try because I need to fill two more lines. I would like to own it, so PUT IT ON DVD!!!!
