Storyline

"The Pleasure Drivers" lays out three separate interconnected stories involving an adulterous therapist, a young sociopath call girl, a vicious lesbian hit woman, a white trash kidnapper, and a brain-damaged ex-cult guru. It's described as funny, sexy, edgy and dangerous. The Pleasure Drivers energetically explores the shadow side of Los Angeles and how it gleefully relates to the gasoline of libido.

Quotes

Bill Plummer: [while hot girl masturbates in passenger seat] Lets start with what Freud said, he said that the self is split into three seperate entities, theres the ego, theres the superego and there is what we call the id. Now the id is unconscious, its purely consumpuious, it just wants and wants, pain, pleasure, perversion. You know, its a beast, just gimme gimme gimme, thats its motto. Tha other side of the personality, of course, is the superego, now this is the parent ego, guilt-inducing half, ...

A Mess...
12 May 2010 | by (United States Minor Outlying Islands) – See all my reviews

"The Pleasure Drivers" is a mess.

The plot: What I can gather is that Daphne (Holly) kidnaps a woman who is connected to a powerful church run by Marvin (Zane). There's also a subplot involving a pretentious professor (Angus Macfadyen) and a sex addict (Lacey Chabert).

The biggest problem with the movie (and it's HUGE) is that absolutely nothing makes sense. The plot should've been laid out in a linear form. It's trying way too hard to be cool and "weird". The acting doesn't help either. Holly has a speech in the beginning of the movie that so off-key and overacted, you'll beg her to stop. Billy Zane has one scene, and it's the only good one. Meat Loaf, usually is fun to watch but his character is a big cliché. The movie moves at a glacial pace, with no snappy dialogue and even music to move it along.

One of the biggest bombs I've seen in a while, "The Pleasure Drivers" is a must-avoid.
