Plot Summary

He may have just graduated but Nick has it all figured out - marriage, a lucrative career and a totally different lifestyle from that of his West Coast hippy parents. When he discovers that his future wife may be falling prey to a powerful and oversexed music producer, Nick is determined to fly to Toronto to win her back. Lifelong buds and dedicated surfers Tyler and Dime have other ideas for their staid best friend - the road trip adventure of his life. With only three days to make it to the MuchMusic Video Awards, the unlikely road warriors head off. Two sexy hitchhikers, Sasha and Jill, complicate matters and a series of accidents, orchestrated by a malevolent stranger, sabotage the trip turning Nick's future plans upside down. Written by Brad

Mother Libby: This darling young man has volunteered to say grace.
Farmer Joseph: Go ahead, son.
Dime: [struggling] Uh. Dear lord... thank you for giving us such a, succulent, meal. Bless us, and please forgive us for anything that we've done... or are doing right now. Do it, don't stop loving us, don't stop baby, please, don't stop. Uhh... And let us... swallow our sins and... oh... oh, Christ... OH, CHRIST! Praise Jesus!
Farmer Joseph: Praise Jesus. Feels good don' it... how a good prayer leaves ya drained. OK, let's eat! Pass the meat!
