Storyline

To a dumpy motel in an out-of-the-way little town, a mysterious woman, calling herself only Ms. Smith, comes to stay. Not only is she stunningly lovely, but her big black convertible is a beaut. J.T., the just-out-of-high-school son of the motel's owner, is taken by the car, and in an attempt to liven up his dull life, and possibly to impress Tanya, a hotel guest who flirts with him and wants to be a model, he steals the car.

Dullride!
2 September 2002 | by (Brasilia, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Silly and ludicrous thriller (if one could say so!) about two young friends who robbered a beautiful car just to find out a corpse in the trunk. A ordinary premise that never hit the point. There's only one curiosity in this misfire: old Adam (Batman) West living a pimp.Believe me, don't lose your precious time. I give this a 3 (three).
