Rob Reiner directs John Cusack, Daphne Zuniga and Nicollette Sheridan in this teen road movie where a mismatched pair of co-eds travel across America together; one too see her boyfriend, the other to make it with a dream woman.
A nice little respin on It Happened One Night… the romantic comedy elements chime best here. A shockingly young looking Cusack manages to translate quite a fratty jock-ish character into a likeable lead… on paper he is certainly a bit of a dick. There’s plenty of laughs and energy even if it very rarely strays from the most travelled route these things must follow.
