Storyline

Andrei Cordescu, NPR journalist, Romanian immigrant, naturalized American citizen, and newly-licensed driver, sets out on a cross- country road trip.

I can't believe the low rating everyone is giving this film!
6 December 2001 | by (washington, DC, USA) – See all my reviews

I've seen this movie twice in the theater over the years and I find it delightful. I can't understand who would give it a 4 or 5. It's charming, witty, keenly observant, ponderous and it takes us to parts of the country we've never seen.

It's not full of explosions or sexy girls, and it's not a stupid comedy about "hair gel" and Brett Farrrrrvreh but it's good fun.
