Tail Lights Fade Simply Just Runs Out Of Gas
21 November 2013 | by (Toronto, home of Rob Ford) – See all my reviews

The film starts out with an interesting musical score complimenting the cinematography of two contrasting vibrant red and green sports cars travelling along the city of Toronto's Queensway Boulevard driven by Jake Busey and Breckin Meyer. The story evolves around the two pals Jake Busey and Breckin Meyer agreeing to travel from Toronto to Vancouver with their respective babes Denise Richards and Tanya Allen in their passenger seats in an effort to clean out a marijuana grow operation that belongs to Tanya Allen's imprisoned brother played by Jaimz Woolvett, before the police discover its whereabouts. Woolvett's girlfriend played by the less than stellar actress Elizabeth Berkley is also trying to find out where her imprisoned boyfriends grow op is located so that she can harvest the crop and sell it for her own financial gain.

So we experience a road trip of sorts with pit stops along the way that includes stops at strip bars, restaurants and the odd road kill. An endless stream of blathering arguments ensue amongst the four weary traveller's but little else of any substance.

I enjoy a good road trip themed film that has a purpose in mind, but Tail Lights Fade although a low budget film, was not very interesting, and I found the ending extremely weak and the way to leave an audience disappointed. One of my favourite road trip movies was the 2010 release of MY OWN LOVE SONG starring Forest Whitaker, Renee Zellweger and Nick Nolte. Hands down, if you wanted to make a choice of which film to see, my advice would be to see the latter and avoid Tail Lights Fade.
