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.

A few gags but somewhat disappointing
18 July 2005 | by (Madison, Wisconsin, USA) – See all my reviews

I had hoped to see some really funny material here.

Perhaps I just didn't get it.

Or perhaps the gags really are lame.

I don't recommend this movie.

There were some jabs aimed at a few of the rather ridiculous type folks.

Those who the wise don't take seriously.

Such as a TV evangelist who says "take it all with you." Sorry but a great deal of the acting was no better than what I saw in the senior class play held by the local high school in 1965.
