Storyline

In rural Sunrise, Illinois, waitress Linda Bronco wants her son Mike to go to college, but all summer after high school, his dim friend Lenny Lake leads Mike into trouble. Their life of crime soon involves Linda, too, as they need money for a lawyer (Lenny's charlatan grandpa Ron, whose trophy wife is the ex-girlfriend of Brian, Linda's latest lover). When Ron fails Mike, Linda decides to send Mike to private college, so she needs more money. After Brian gives them a tip on cash at Mr. Snack, a fast food joint, it's robbery time. Then there's Suzi and Suzy, young women who work at Mr. Snack and have their eyes on Mike and Lenny. Is there a ticket out of the trailer park? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Quotes

Ron Lake: You boys ever been in love with a woman? Other than Pamela Anderson? You want to know what it feels like to be in love with someone, and have that someone be fucking someone else? It's like having a rat in your stomach, chewing and crawling its way through all your organs, stopping only long enough to shit, piss and laugh at ya. And that rat gets up into your heart, and stays there sometimes for years. Sometimes forever.

very funny, rent this
14 August 2002 | by (houston) – See all my reviews

This movie rules! I laughed alot. The main character's one-eyed celibate semi-pro wrestler dad is just too funny. Jaime Pressly plays the perfect trailer park girl. Jason London is hilarious as the local stud. All performances are dead on. Nothing to dislike. I wish more indies were this good.
