Storyline

Two dimwit owners (Robert Carradine, Richard Hillman) of a struggling hauling company are approached about hauling a huge, mysterious box across country at the end of the century. The cargo has religious significance and may be an attempt to release Satan in the Devil's Triangle to start the next century. En route, many step out to try to stop their delivery including Patrick Kilpatrick as a gay ex-con, Talia Shire playing in drag, Morton Downey, Jr. as a tv celebrity, and Rosanna Arquette as a gun-toting sexpot.

Crap! I would have expected this movie to have been made by a very amatuer film maker, turns out to be Francis Ford Coppola's nephew, Christopher. The apple fell far, far from the tree. The characters were unhinged and barely tollerable as was the plot. But even worse, the cardinal sin was broken.....the movie was so bad I began looking at things like the camera work, and style, completely forgetting about the storyline all together. There were so many goofy camera angles that I felt like I was in an anti-gravity room with an equilibrium problem. I thought the movie was trying to be a mixture of Pulp Fiction, a road trip film, Dumb and Dumber, and the Prophecy. I certainly would expect better from a Coppola!
