Storyline

An academic obsessed with "roadside attractions" and his tv-star daughter finally discover the world's largest ice cream cone, the centerpiece for an old gold-rush town struggling to stay on the map. They end up staying longer than expected because of an accident that spilled an unknown cola ingredient all over the highway. They spend the next few days with the various residents of the town which include a teenage girl who loves to blow things up and a boy trying to keep alive his fathers dream of building a beachside resort in the middle of the desert.

Cale: Come on Blue, it's easy money. Billy said 10 bucks an hour, man. That's some cash. The way I figure it, we can make at least a hundred bucks a day fixin' up the motel.

It's the "holy-crap-i-know-that-actor" effect
6 October 2002 | by mattryan00See all my reviews

I'd like to preface any comments with the fact that i liked this movie. It was a good watch, and i really enjoyed it. I was never much of a kate hudson fan, but after watching this one it's impossible not to love that girl :o)

I can't stand the people on imdb that write these over-analytical, hollywood bullsh*t analyses; so i'll keep this one simple and to the point: Solid romantic plot, fun dialogue, and interesting characters.

I also had fun recognizing some of the people in this film who play lesser roles, who are more notable from other movies/tv shows (i.e. "darlene" from roseanne, peter mcallister--the dad from home alone, and the head fbi agent--from starship troopers just to name a few). I don't want to brand any of these actors with these roles; it's just that i'd find myself watching and go: I know that person!

Well, that's all i got here...give it a watch :o)
