Storyline

A terminally ill man gets his buddy to bust him out of the hospital. But, in the process, the duo antagonizes a city policeman, who trails them to the boonies surrounding their hometown. The local sheriff and their lady friend (who think more kindly of the pair) strive to find the fugitives before the less-compassionate posse, which includes a deranged, rifle-toting foe of the two.

plus more than minus
3 May 2003 | by (Pocono Summit, PA) – See all my reviews

Voted it slightly above average...made me feel SOME legitimate emotion: a little humor; a bit of pathos. Even if the acting is not quite on the mark, the characters have elements of interest, as does the plot: A couple of crotchety-but-harmless, older California bachelors share an impoverished, rural shack. One is receiving unwanted urban hospitalization for a terminal illness; and the other sets out to fulfill the wish to be sprung. First, however, an accidental feud begins with an acquaintance who is later all-too-willing to help the police hunt for the duo. You see, a city cop trails the guys to their hometown 'cause they broke a few laws gettin' out of the medical center. The local sheriff knows the pair as eccentric but not dangerous, so he and their girlfriend (that's right - singular: one gal likes them both) figure out where they're headed and try to keep one step ahead of the posse. Despite the ample dose of good-nature throughout, you're still kinda worried about just how unhappy the ending might be.
