Storyline

This is the tale of two young lovers who flee from the miseries of their homelife to make it on there own. Nineteen year old Chris, rejected by his family, hopes to go to college and into forestry once he's out of the Army Reserves. Holly, who is fourteen, lives with her divorced, overprotective mother and her brother. She runs with an older crowd and soon attaches herself to Chris. Holly's mother is dead set against Chris because of his age, and she and Holly are at odd's over him. When she forbids them to see one another, and boots Chris out of her yard, Holly convinces a doubtful Chris to run off to the promises of California. The Trip West, with the couple penniless, avoiding the law, a lecherous trucker and other routine incidents, shows them that life will not be easy. Once in southern California there are no answers except for a fortuitous offer from the Hollywood Outreach Program, which they pass up. Bad luck hits hard, but Chris can't go home because the army has declared him... Written by Rachelle Stewart

Love Without Money Does Not Work!
1 December 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a very excellent film for all young gals and guys who feel they are deeply in LOVE and cannot do without each other and just Plain elope and run around until their money runs out. Mark Paul Gosselaar,(Chris),"NYPD Blue",TV Series'93, looks very young in this film and gives a great performance as a love sick guy who falls madly in love with Gina Philips,(Holly Nolan),"The Woodsman",'04. This couple run into all kinds of problems with a truck driver who wants sex in the worst way and there are scenes where this young couple have to sleep in a FLOP HOUSE in LA! This film clearly shows that falling in love and running away from your families that love you will only cause great harm to everyone involved.

There ARE NO FREE HAND OUTS!!!
