Storyline

Peter and Chris, two young American friends in their late 20s, go from South Dakota to California on a scooter, and as they travel across the American landscape they see their country through different eyes, ranging from Peter's cynically nihilistic point of view, to Chris' high expectations and romantic notions of the United States.

Merendino's Best
8 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Following the Dogma rules does not make this film hard to watch... In the end, it is a great story and shows that Merendino can be a mature film maker.

It;s about two guys a Vespa and a trip from South Dakota to Los Angeles.

It's funny, insightful and tragic... If you can, see it.

What is most important that it is honest... And it is different than the other Dogma films in that it looks good.

It is hard to find, but this IS a classic.
