Storyline

Two dimwit owners (Robert Carradine, Richard Hillman) of a struggling hauling company are approached about hauling a huge, mysterious box across country at the end of the century. The cargo has religious significance and may be an attempt to release Satan in the Devil's Triangle to start the next century. En route, many step out to try to stop their delivery including Patrick Kilpatrick as a gay ex-con, Talia Shire playing in drag, Morton Downey, Jr. as a tv celebrity, and Rosanna Arquette as a gun-toting sexpot.

The bad guy is being electrocuted in the trailer by the Christmas tree. Check out his legs when he's "on fire". Someone simply overlaid a "fire effect" over his picture. His legs flail, but the fire's base doesn't move. See more »

This is a whacky, cult classic, a melting circus on an American highway.
2 July 1999 | by (Long Beach, USA) – See all my reviews

This is a whacky, cult classic, a melting circus on an American highway. "It's a Mad, Mad World" for the nineties. I thoroughly enjoyed this funny and refreshingly different film
