Did You Know?

Goofs

When Sylvia cuts the air lines under the trailer, the brakes would have locked up and stayed locked up. The brakes would not have released, and the truck would have had brakes even if the trailer didn't. See more »

Nothing New At All
24 April 2002 | by See all my reviews

Same old story, okay acting, passable filmmaking, tired climax. Mainly for Meatloaf fans (yes, the man is a fair actor). Overlook the plot holes, jaded characters, indestructible automobile, goofs and you have a movie that you might watch through to the end, if you are laid up in bed, and the remote is broken.
