Goofs

Near the end of the movie, when Lorraine's character is holding the shotgun on Roy right after the car wreck, she fires the gun once over Roy's head, then pumps the shotgun, but no empty shell is ejected, which is impossible. Worse yet, she delivers another line of dialogue and then pumps the shotgun a second time without having fired it again and, once more, no shell is ejected. Roy would have known the gun was empty.

Quotes

Roy: Lorraine, you do me right, and I'll send you and your boy off with a smile and a fond farewell. You do me wrong, then you and little Chad here are fucked.
Lorraine Burton: Are you threatening my son now?
Roy: I'm threatening you and your son.

User Reviews

A very tense and engrossing thriller about a mother and her son carjacked and forced to drive the stranger to safety. I say B+
8 November 2011 | by cosmo_tigerSee all my reviews

"I don't want your money, you got a car don't you...drive" Lorraine (Bello) is having a rough time. Her husband left her with her young son and she has no money. Her night begins with group therapy, then she spends the rest of the money she has on Bagel Bites and gas. It gets worse when Roy (Dorff) comes into her life. He wants a ride, and has a gun to make sure he gets one. Lorraine and her son are now forced to help him. This is a movie that could easily have been a cheesy TV drama. The fact that Bello & Dorff are the actors helps make it into a more tense and exciting thriller. This is the kind of movie that has you hooked 5 minutes in and you are tense and on the edge of your seat the entire time. Stuck between doing what you would think you would do, and what you should do keeps you thinking and engrossed the entire time. Nothing really amazing here, but one of the most tense and exciting thrillers I have seen in a while. Overall, a very good movie that won't disappoint and is very much worth watching. I give it a B+.
