At about 43 minutes, when the cops are pushing Bobby's car to help him get it started at the gas station, one of the cops falls down and, if you listen closely, you can people off camera laugh. See more »
Bad lucks seems to dog a Los Angeles auto mechanic (Paul Le Mat, hot off "American Graffiti") and a young single mom (Dianne Hull) working at a car wash. They take to the highway towards Mexico after a prank in a liquor store inadvertently leads to the shooting death of the cashier. Writer-director Floyd Mutrux is enamored of the city at dusk--its neon lights and music billboards in the sky--and he creates a late-night jukebox feel for the film that recalls "Graffiti"'s bracing ambiance. Unfortunately, Mutrux's script seems cobbled together from the lyrics of the pop songs he loves so much (particularly those sung by Elton John), while shaggy-haired Le Mat seems a little too mature and seasoned for his role. This is the type of movie he might have appeared in before "Graffiti" made him a budding star. ** from ****
