Storyline

He may have just graduated but Nick has it all figured out - marriage, a lucrative career and a totally different lifestyle from that of his West Coast hippy parents. When he discovers that his future wife may be falling prey to a powerful and oversexed music producer, Nick is determined to fly to Toronto to win her back. Lifelong buds and dedicated surfers Tyler and Dime have other ideas for their staid best friend - the road trip adventure of his life. With only three days to make it to the MuchMusic Video Awards, the unlikely road warriors head off. Two sexy hitchhikers, Sasha and Jill, complicate matters and a series of accidents, orchestrated by a malevolent stranger, sabotage the trip turning Nick's future plans upside down. Written by Brad

Well... it's better than most Canadian movies...
22 June 2009 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

If you have watched as many Canadian movies I have over the years, you have probably learned to avoid them, at least if they are ones that have received funding from the government. However, when I learned that this one was aimed at a wider-than-usual audience than usual (instead of being just made for the filmmaker, his friends, and the art-loving government), plus the fact that I was able to see it for free (no way I am spending money on a Canadian government-funded movie!), I decided to give it a chance.

There are some positive things I can say about this Canadian movie. The scenery is breathtaking at times. This movie not only has a pleasant backdrop, it makes the movie seem more fresh. The production values, though low budget, are a step up from most Canadian films. Also, the characters are (for the most part), a more likable bunch of characters than what you usually get for a youth-oriented comedy. This probably also explains why the movie seems less crude than the usual youth-oriented comedies you see.

But overall, the movie didn't work. The main reason for that is pretty simple - the movie isn't very funny. Most of the gags are predictable and tired, with no imagination to them despite the enthusiastic cast that performs them. Another fault of the movie is that the main character (for reasons that I won't spoil) becomes somewhat less sympathetic in the last quarter of the movie.

Still, this movie is a step up for Canadian film-making. Let's hope it inspires other Canadian filmmakers (as well as the Canadian government) to make movies with an AUDIENCE in mind, instead of the usual arty crap that NOBODY wants to see (either in Canada or elsewhere).

(P.S. - This movie actually played on prime time television in Canada with all the nudity, language, and sex-related material intact, and NOBODY complained! The American TV censors could learn something from this.)
