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.

Absolutely Terrible
25 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This has got to be the absolute worst movie I have EVER seen. I've seen some crappy movies including "the Vanishing Point" (1997), and "Snakes on a Train", but this one definitely tops them all. The story line was untolerably boring, the acting was terrible, and the movie in general was so corny that it wasn't even funny. Sure I got a laugh out of a few of the scenes from their stupidity, but to be completely honest, me and my buddies couldn't watch the whole thing... We made it to half way, then skipped to the end just to see how things turned out.. Anyways, this has got to be on the top ten worst movies ever made. I bought it for $10 thinking it might be something like the classic "Smokey and the Bandit." Man was I wrong. Trust me, save your cash and go to a theater for some entertainment.. You definitely wont get it from this movie!
