Storyline

Jack is caught with the wife of his employer, a Vegas thug. The thug sends goons after Jack, who convinces his best friend, Pilot, to flee with him. Pilot insists that they head for Seattle, but doesn't tell Jack why. The goons learn from Pilot's drug source where the youths are headed, and they follow, hell bent on breaking Jack's feet. On the road, Jack and Pilot give a ride to Cassie, a distressed young woman. She and Jack hit it off. They pick up an aging stoner headed to Seattle for Kurt Cobain's memorial, and they help a circus sideshow family. Why is Pilot so set on Seattle, will the goons catch Jack, and is there any way the friends' competing needs can be resolved? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Excellent movie
20 August 2004 | by See all my reviews

A true movie about true friendship. Many may seem to think that a movie about two male best friends has something "gay" to it, but the truth is that there is nothing homosexual about a true brotherly love and care between two guys. People should break this prejudice. It is entertaining and fun to watch. It is based on a story about two friends (Leto & Gyllenhaal) that go on a road trip to Seattle for two different reasons. Leto's character is running away from their Nevada's home town because of troubles with his employer's wive, and Gyllenhaal's character wants to visit his high school graduation love interest that is now living in Seattle. I strongly recommend you this movie. You won't regret it.
