Brief Synopsis – A quartet of friends dealing with mi-life crises, decide to take a cross country trip on motorcycles.
Bottom Line – Fun idea that doesn’t work well at all despite an amazing cast. John Travolta, Tim Allen, William H. Macy and Martin Lawrence are all great actors, but they aren’t given enough leeway to make their characters more engaging. The story starts off well, but move into very strange and silly territory which hurts things far too much. The plot plays out in a very predictable way which also drags things down too much.
MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – The scene in the Del Fuego’s bar, when Woody was squinting, was almost entirely improvised. The cast had done the scene a couple of times and would ad-lib occasionally. One time John Travolta just started squinting in a Clint Eastwood impression. The other characters’ reactions were real. They were expecting John to say his lines, but kept going with it. (From IMDB)
Rating – BAFTA Worthy (5/10)
