This movie never seems to get going and the script just kind of lays there.
11 September 2018 | by calvinnmeSee all my reviews

Judge Reinhold stars as a rich kid driving his new Thunderbird from school in California down to Florida to commence work in his dad's restaurant business. A car with three roughnecks drives by and shoots a hole in his radiator, and a passing hitchhiker (Willem Dafoe) helps get the car running again. They only make it to the next small town in Arizona, where they have to replace the damaged part. They meet a pair of bored sisters who start up a romance, and the new friends run into the three roughnecks again, who happen to be the town troublemakers. Bar brawls, hot rod races and 50's style rock n roll fill out the running time. Also with Kaaren Lee, Kate Vernon, Stephen Elliott, Alan Autry, Kevyn Major Howard, Peter Van Norden, and the Western Union Man as himself.

Taken as a character study, it still lacks enough interest to make the effort worthwhile. Reinhold is decent doing his usual naive good guy act, while Dafoe unfortunately doesn't add his usual intensity. Filmed in Kingman, Arizona.
