After a rich old man dies in a suspicious car accident in Acapulco, his widow wants his insurance company to pony up five million dollars. A hotshot investigator Decker (Charles Grodin) and a charming model (Farrah Fawcett) come in to check it out.
While many people are bored of this movie, one can still enjoy it. Yes, the plot is told easily: a man and a woman who have never met before drive together through the USA in order save money. That's all. But then, the actors are just great, especially Louise Lasser playing a naive, insecure woman. When I watched this for the first time, it was not very special to me, but when I recently watched this movie again, I continuously laughed about their dialogs and experiences. My favorite scene is in the motel, where they stay over night in the 'wedding suite' (the most expensive room there, even though it's the only one): the clerk says something like "maybe you are hungry?" "yes" "OK then, good night!" This movie is worth watching if one is patient. Otherwise, better switch to a different channel. My vote: 9/10
