Did You Know?
This films is based upon a true story of what happened to Michael Legge, one of the writers, as he was on his way to a meeting with producer, Michael Z. Gordon. The purpose of the meeting was to discuss possible ideas for a new screenplay. After hearing Legge's bizarre experience on his way to the restaurant, Gordon looked at him and said, "There's you story!" Three weeks later, this script was born.
A movie with the feel of a cheesy 80's action movie. Not good at all but it is entertaining. Worth watching. I say B-
"Once you go down this road there ain't no coming back." Michael (Cain)
is driving home when he sees the beautiful Sarah (Burson) hitchhiking.
He stops to pick her up and his life is thrown into chaos. I have to
start by saying that this is not an amazing movie at all. It's not even
technically a good movie, but it is an entertaining movie. There have
been a few movies recently (Take Me Home Tonight is the main example)
that have tried to have the feel of a movie set in the 80's. Most come
off as trying too hard. I don't know if this movie was trying or not
but it definitely had the feel of a very cheesy low budget 80's movie.
The effects were bad and even the plot seemed to be a throw back. If
you judge the movie based on effects and acting this is terrible. If
you judge it based on entertainment and watch-ability it's not that
bad. There are much worse ways to spend 90 minutes of your life.
Overall, not good at all, but it is entertaining. I give it a B-.
