Directed by Monte Hellman
This is one of those exceptionally dull movies that I tend to forget about as soon as I am finished. Let's try to get this over with as quickly as possible, before the memory slips away completely.
Two guys drive on Route 66 and challenge another guy to a race to Washington DC. Whoever wins gets "pinks". The only thing remotely interesting about this film is that the two main characters are played by James Taylor and Dennis Wilson. What is it with musicians making movies in the 1970s? I found that it rarely results in a good movie, but that is a rant I will save for Moonstruck.
Of course, there is supposed to be a lot more to this movie that two people driving. Still, I found the metaphors to be too heavy-handed to be effective. Dull, dull, dull.
James Taylor never watched this film. When the actor won't even watch the movie, you know it's boring.
One of only three movies that actress Laurie Bird was in before she killed herself.
