Wanna go for a ride?...YES PLEASE!
31 July 2007 | by (Kissimmee, Florida) – See all my reviews

What can I said about "Pick-Up" that hasn't been said already? It's sad to see the negatives that were posted on here about the movie....how about you think outside the box?

Anyways, another reviewer pretty much told you what the film was about, so I won't repeat that here. What I will tell you is the film is just great. The film is obviously low budget...but not in a bad way whatsoever! They made with what they had...the acting (for that time), was very good, the directing was great, and I would just like to point out the editing...excellent! You know, back then it wasn't easy like it is now, and there's some trippy stuff you see in between shots as well. Oh, and both of the girls...absolutely beautiful.

The film, like one reviewer said, plays like a "trip"....and I absolutely gotta agree with them! Definitely a trip I would love to be on that's for sure. I WILL NOT give away the ending, but to this day it's stuck with me and I always think about it. The pacing is great, both of the girls are excellent (as characters and actresses)...the guy that owns the RV place always cracks me up lol

Seriously though, the other reviewer did a top notch job, and I can't think of anything else to say other than this:

Want to see a film that is original and unlike any other film you have seen? Tired of the films that try and pass as "grindhouse" films nowadays and want the real thing? Pick up "PICK-UP" today and go on one hell of a ride =)

But to agree with one of the other reviewers....YES!!! This, if no other movie, needs a special edition!!!!
