They decide to continue his journey, but do not understand the dangers they will soon encounter. Written by Film_Fan

Trivia

D.B. Cooper was the name that reporters gave to a man who, in 1971, hijacked an airliner, extorted $200,000 from its owner (Northwest Orient), and parachuted off the airborne plane with 21 pounds of $20 bills strapped to his body. He was never caught, and it is generally assumed that he did not survive his parachute landing. See more »

Surprisingly brilliant
22 July 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

To be honest, I was expecting a bit of a disaster with this movie but it turned out to be far better than I thought. Sure! It's no classic, has its flaws but it just refuses to take itself seriously. The three leads are very strong - Seth Green just edging it cos hes just adorable in this! Some very, VERY funny moments in this, maybe a little too many moments where the films tries to over emphasise some messages but that will be clear when you've seen the film. Also a total "where have I seen you before" moment with the girl from Clueless! However, I fully recommend you give this film a try, you won't be disappointed! 8/10 for comedy with a heart!
