An enjoyable enough road movie that coasts along on the strength of the central trio of actors. It is intriguing to see such early performances from them, although the fact that all three have gone on to perform similar types of characters in other films prevents this from feeling as fresh as it probably did at the time of release. That said, Griffiths and Daniels have a lot of fun with their characters and while there is little here that is surprising, Liotta helps to bring a little bit of tension to the second half.
