weird, boring yet intriguing
27 August 2002 | by (Michigan) – See all my reviews

This movie is a very average movie until the last 20 minutes. It starts off being about a hitchhiker who gets picked up by four guys traveling around in an RV. One guy is a mean trashy sexist idiot, one guy is a cowering softspoken yet frustrated insurance salesman, one guy is a poor, Mexican stereotype, and the last guy is your "nice guy" with lots of money and no personality. Why are they hanging out together? I don't know, but I guess they're all friends that like to go up to some isolated cottage and hang out together. Well the sexist guy of course is hell bent on getting with this 17-year old blond hitchhiker who hates him from the start. So everyone goes to the cottage (against the hitchhiker's will) and starts getting drunk and stoned. The nice guy and the hitchhiker end up making out and being friends, but then when night comes, everyone's passed out, and the sexist guy and the Mexican get up and the sexist guy rapes the hitchhiker while the Mexican just watches.

So then you are forced to watch scene after scene of annoying lawyers and office scenes and people talking on the phone for what seems to be hours because the hitchiker decides to sue the rapist. Every stupid scene for long time after this is just set in an office with somebody sitting in a big chair and somebody standing up argueing with them. It's very tedious and annoying. And it's funny how the nice guy is the only one never in an office, but sitting in a tropical location outside next to a beach all by himself with a phone on a little table.

So time drags on, and on, but THEN, just as you think the movie couldn't get any more boring, you are introduced to a new character that you had forgotten about. See, during the opening credits, you hear a radio news broadcast about a mental patient who had escaped named Daphne. Then everything goes weird.

YOu'll have to see it. It's totally random.

I wouldn't recommend this movie except if you're not going to have to sit and watch the whole thing. It's fun if you're just half-paying attention.
