A departure from the typical Boy Meets Girl Road Trip Film
18 March 2002 | by Number 9See all my reviews

A wonderful little independent film. I had the chance to see this at SXSW in 2002.

Kwik Stop starts out like your normal Boy Meets Girl, boy and girl go on road trip, boy and girl get into trouble type film. It quickly leaves that genre however and ends up in some completely other place.

It bounces from comedy to melodrama about half way through. All of the performances are wonderful and the writing is good (if not at all times believable). Some of the dialogue was a bit too over the top for my tastes and the ending had me asking "why". I think had this film stayed more light-hearted I would have liked it more. But for the Writer/Director's first effort it was well worth seeing!
