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 »

Paradise by the dashboard lights of the semi? NOT!
14 July 2003 | by (Minneapolis, MN, USA) – See all my reviews

This is the third or fourth film I've seen with Meatloaf Aday playing a character. I was not a fan of his acting in his videos, and I still feel the same way when it comes to full length feature films. But the guy can sing, and I am a fan of his in that respect, so my admiration follows him to the screen, where, once again, he is driving a large vehicle with just as big an ego behind the wheel (same as he was in "BLACK DOG").

But this time, he plays a psychopathic trucker with "issues" left to be dealt with. And Kristin Davis gets caught in the middle when she has a fight with boyfriend Lochlyn Munro, getting picked up as a hitch hiker by Aday, not knowing what she's traded up (or down) for.

This film had a little suspense in it, but I wasn't on the edge of the couch, waiting for the next event to happen, but I was intrigued, nonetheless. The characters were developed to the point where I knew where Aday's character defects lay, but it is an almost systematic plot that was really predictable. I scored a 6 on this film, but I think I was being generous just for the fact that Aday was the star.
