When they're at the diner you can hear a song when they're leaving the car and it says "Candy Kane" which is what Paul Walker said his name was in the first movie. See more »
Before the truck backs up to ram the Chevelle, the license plate is hanging by one screw. When we next see the truck several hundred yards back the license plate is perfectly straight. See more »
I did everything you asked!
No, you didn't. I saw you down at the funeral parlor.
Mel, what is going on?
There's a big difference between a freshly cut, live finger and one snipped from a corpse. Less blood in that one you got there. Stiffer, paler. The nail's yellowed, no nutrients, deteriorating. Want to see what a fresh one looks like? Check the glove compartment.

I've seen a lot of movies that went direct to DVD, so I can say with confidence that "Joy Ride 2: Dead Ahead" is an above average example. It doesn't beat the first movie, but if you go in with lower expectations as I did, it does provide a reasonable amount of entertainment. For what was a low budget (just $5 million), the movie all the same looks fairly professional. Director Louis Morneau shoots the movie on picturesque locations (believe it or not, this desert-set movie was shot in British Columbia), the cinematography is good, there is ample set decoration, and there are some good vehicular action sequences and stunts here and there. The story does make for some somewhat tense moments as well, though I will admit that the protagonists are not terribly likable - though on the other hand, seeing these guys put through various tortures is amusing and satisfying. Most importantly, the movie is never boring. If you are into B movies as I am, you'll probably find the movie entertaining enough.
