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.

Did You Know?

Goofs

In the earlier scenes the car is a 1970 Cutlass with factory AM-FM radio, sport steering wheel, and dual hood scoops. When we see the car again in the final scenes it is now a 1971 Cutlass with aftermarket CD player and NO hood scoops. The story we are given that it was repainted does not explain away the fact that it is an entirely different car. See more »

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).
