Storyline

Four men from Harlem in their early 30's, friends from childhood, take a late summer break, heading out of town in a Mercury Monarch on a 30-plus-hour drive to a vacation spot. Wilson is an FBI agent, George a mechanic, Phil teaches African-American studies, and Dre's a doctor. They tease and reminisce, mostly about sex; they argue, mostly about racial politics. Then, late on the second night of the trip, they stop at a roadside diner. Phil and a cracker get in a pushing match, and soon fists are flying. The four drive off, but their woes have just begun as they get lost on a county road and the deputy sheriffs get a call to watch for four drug dealers who tried to rob the diner.

An interesting film
4 January 2003 | by (Bleveskovolokia) – See all my reviews

This film really isn't all that bad. Almost nobody has heard of it outside of Bleveskovolokia. It's about a group of middle aged black men that are going on a trip out of harlem. It has some of the qualities of Easy Rider but it's for a very different audience. The dialogue that goes on in this film was very realistic, well done, and interesting. It's by no means a great film but I'm sure there are some people out there who would really love it and get a lot from it. It's definitely far better then a lot of the mainstream trash produced these days.
