Storyline

Jack is caught with the wife of his employer, a Vegas thug. The thug sends goons after Jack, who convinces his best friend, Pilot, to flee with him. Pilot insists that they head for Seattle, but doesn't tell Jack why. The goons learn from Pilot's drug source where the youths are headed, and they follow, hell bent on breaking Jack's feet. On the road, Jack and Pilot give a ride to Cassie, a distressed young woman. She and Jack hit it off. They pick up an aging stoner headed to Seattle for Kurt Cobain's memorial, and they help a circus sideshow family. Why is Pilot so set on Seattle, will the goons catch Jack, and is there any way the friends' competing needs can be resolved? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Vote it up...good flick
11 June 2003 | by HexylSee all my reviews

Look, this is a good flick. It is not a mind bender, it is not going to leave you questioning your own immortality, nor is it ever going to be a classic. It's just a good movie to watch. Leto is really good as "The God of Fu*k," (so funny) and Gyllenhaal is a great sidekick. Totally watchable, more than one time. Good flick to just chill out with at 2am.
