Storyline

An off-screen narrator, Mort Golden, takes us back to winter around 1975, the year he was 21. He and his two buddies, Tim and Danny, have a fateful trip over the bridge from Detroit into Canada. The three of them are going nowhere in life, although Mort has thoughts of being a writer, while his mom wants him to go to college. He and his pals contemplate making a quick fortune transporting drugs over the border in their beat-up Buick, "the war wagon." Mort's also hopelessly in love with a girl he dated briefly a couple years before. With border inspectors, Tim's temper, and Danny's bottled up emotions, is there any way this can end well?

Ambassador Bridge, baby
26 December 1999 | by (Lisle, IL) – See all my reviews

This movie is pretty cool. I rented it because it's the only movie filmed in Winsdor, Ontario. Winsdor happens to be a favorite road trip destination of mine, and I even smuggled a little Canadian beer and some cubans back with me so this movie reminds me of me and my two friends. The acting is good enough, and I didn't think of Jason Gedrick's role in Heavenly Kid until the credits role. This movie really speaks to me, it's characters are a few years removed from high school, their hobbies are fighting and drinking beer and there's this nostalgia thing throughout. I give it 9 out of ten now. Maybe in 10 years that will change.
