An odd couple take to the open road. Having followed his girlfriend out to California's Wine Country for the summer, Yale law student Sherman finds himself dumped, and cut off from his high-society mother's money. A stranger stranded in a strange land, he hitches a ride with Palmer, a washed-up, unapologetically eccentric Olympic athlete. There are detours along the way, including the possibility of an enlightening girlfriend, an encounter with a gun-wielding gourmet chef and a chance for the former athlete to be on top again. A comedy about absent fathers and damaged sons striving to find balance between responsibility and recklessness. Written by
Palmer's car is actually at least two different cars - a 1966 MGB and a 1975 model. This is apparent in different scenes, where sometimes the car has side lamps and reverse lamps (1975) and sometimes it doesn't (1966), and where the interior changes between solid black with visible rectangular door pulls (1975) and black with red piping (1966).

The bag Sherman has slung over her shoulders keeps switching shoulders throughout the scene. See more »
Those guys are crazy. We should do it.

Run with the Pundits? No thanks. It's a silly tradition.
Aw, is this because of your butt?
'Cause you think you have a fat butt.

We were at a convention for British Car Enthusiasts and somehow the director/producer was invited to screen the film for over 300 of us at the convention. There happens to be an MGB in the film so the organizers thought it would be cool. No one had ever heard of the film, but most everyone enjoyed it and got quite a few laughs out of it.
Turned out to be a very good film in fact and worth seeing when it gets to the big screen or on DVD if it does not make it to the theater.
About life, taking risks, relationships and very well done with a good story line. Other than some language and minor skinny dipping scenes it still could be a very good family film.
Thinking about it almost reminds me of a modern Easy Rider in a way.
