Storyline

In 1989, clean-cut FBI man John Buckner is detailed to escort heavily-bearded Huey Walker back to jail for offenses dating back to his days as a celebrated hippie radical. After Walker dupes Buckner on the train he falls into the hands of a couple of well-meaning refugees from the 60's, the two men with apparently nothing in common find themselves on the run together. But appearances can be deceptive. Written by Jeremy Perkins <jwp@aber.ac.uk>

Trivia

Huey (Dennis Hopper) says, "You can't just go to your local video store and rent Easy Rider (1969) to be a rebel." Hopper directed and starred in "Easy Rider". See more »

Goofs

When Buckner and Walker board the train (in Oregon), Stark asks Sheriff Hightower where the next stop is. Hightower replies, "It's across the border into Canada." Washington State lies between Oregon and Canada; it's very unlikely that the train would bypass Washington state. See more »

Quotes

Huey Walker: That is cold, man. What if the train derails, huh? What if we plunge into a river, huh?
John Buckner: You drown.
Huey Walker: Know thy enemy.

20 August 2003 | by (New Cumberland, Pa) – See all my reviews

Great movie! Lots of good one-liners, reference to old movies, quotables, etc... Good performance by Dennis Hopper as a "Prankster" Hippy and also by Kiefer Sutherland as an FBI Agent in denial. Carol Kane as the communal Flowerchild is a treat as well.

As with most older Dennis Hopper films, he plays the aging Hippy like noone else can. Makes you feel bad that poor old Huey himself didn't make it to Woodstock. ;)

Quote (by Hopper's character Huey Walker): "Did you know that all condoms have a serial number on 'em? No? Then YOU must not have had to ever roll one down FAR enough!"

Classic.... :)
