NOT the best film ever.. but.
11 October 2001 | by See all my reviews

I had been curious to see the "OTHER" films released under the View Askew banner.. this film while not under that banner was still directed by a friend of the View Askew crew, and.. included one little cameo (uncredited).

I will DISAGREE with the other poster.. I thought EVERYONE was exceptionally strong in their roles, aside from "Angie" and "Eve", c'mon face it .. "Showgirls" was a T&A movie, Berkley while cute can't act. The movie deals with Angie (sadly) who's brother gets busted for possession. So his sister decides to burn his stash, her boyfriend (Meyer) invites himself who in turn invites the other 2 yokels (Busey, Richards) and they turn it into a road rally as they are all racing nuts. There is some good dialogue, and Meyer gives his all in a rather thankless part.. as much as Richard (she's funny as hell as the white trash girlfriend) and Busey.. well he can't be his son, clone maybe.. All in all, its a funny movie.. and it has a rather downer kind of ending.. But, it is still very much worth the rental. Better than some other films out there, alot better than many. It won't knock your socks off, and.. you probably won't really remember much of it next week.. But it is a decent 90 minutes of viewing.. ONE note, the DVD BLOWS! There are, sadly, ZERO extra features and not even a trailer for the film.. But still, a decent enough movie at least worthy of one watch.
