Storyline

Duncan, a philosophical nomad hitchhiking across America, grabs a ride to Ann Arbor, Michigan from Toad - a performance artist and purple leisure slacks enthusiast from the suburbs. Toad has recently left his home town to begin a new life in Ann Arbor where his co-dependent, folk-singing sister Jenny lives with her verbally abusive fiancé, a law student named Calvin. Jenny currently sees a suicidal therapist four times a week and armed with her acoustic guitar, drives away patrons from a local coffee house where she slings cappuccinos with her best friend Squeeze. Squeeze is a closet genius whose easy-going outlook and unconditional support keep her live-in boyfriend Hank from the brink. Hank is a painter who can't paint because he spends his time baking delicious pastries and practicing for the Oprah Winfrey Show. In Ann Arbor, the civilians listen to Julian, a sociopathic dee-jay whose frustration and lingering optimism goad him to find the truth by cutting through blind idealism, ...

Quotes

Duncan: I think it all started with the Declaration of Independence; the idea that we had the inalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. That pursuit is what took America from the revolution to the computer age in 200 years. But the progress has come at a price. The obvious being the people that were exploited to make it possible; the not so obvious being us, the first group of people that were given no obvious frontiers to conquer. We hear stories about the good old days that ...

A MUST see IMO
8 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this film about 8 years ago on Sundance channel and absolutely LOVED IT!! Comedy YES, and rather brilliant at times. AS a fan of dialog's driven movies this film scores big for me. There is a LOT more than just humor to this movie and was very thought provoking especially pertaining to some of the visual symbology. The last scene/s in the film were nothing short of genius. It is a breakdown of the main parachuter's experiences drawing all the threads together into a short symposium with beautiful message. I am an emotional person and this film really touched me and made me laugh out loud from the sharp witty humor.

I HAD a VHS I recorded from the TV and shared it with a lot of friends. Nearly EVERYONE loved it... some are just not too deep or sharp witted.

I lost the worn out VHS nearly 5 years ago and have never seen it broadcast since, nor is it available for purchase ANYWHERE. I really miss it and would gladly pay an unreasonable sum for a copy *wink wink-nod nod* If you have access to a copy please please please let me know (aol.com) It would really mean a LOT to me.
