This movie blew me away. I wasn't expecting much when I turned on the DVD player. When I turned it off, I called my best friend right away and told her for now on, my name is Pilot. This movie just had everything. Funny, romantic, adventurous, violence, wow. I can't give any analysis here because I just want to tell people straight out, this movie is AMAZING. This will forever be my second favorite movie of all time. And such an amazing cast to top it all off. What more can I say besides it's a shame that this marvelous film is so unknown. Spread the Highway Gospel.
BEST. MOVIE. EVER. In caps.
