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.

108 minutes of my life I wish I had back!
18 February 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is undoubtedly the worst movie I have ever seen! I am shocked that it was billed as a comedy, because there was nothing remotely funny about this film. I can only guess that whomever tried to categorize this picture gave up and proffered "comedy" since it defies all conventional genres and was not entertaining in any other fashion. There is only a sliver of a plot to guide this surreal, pointless tale and you would be better entertained by striking yourself in the head with a heavy, blunt object, which would ultimately result in less brain trauma than viewing this movie would cause. Sadly, I have had the misfortune of watching "Palmer's Pickup" in its entirety and I am now compelled to save others from from a similar fate.
