True story of young man who shuns the ordinary life to hitchhike across the country, gaining life experience and meeting interesting people. Hirsch is superb, Holbrook heartbreaking. Solid direction from Sean Penn.
There was a time when Dana Carvey could make people laugh, but this sad, sad excuse for a comedy is the proverbial stake in the heart of his career. Quite possibly no movie, except Joe Dirt, is so terribly unfunny. Better to go watch reruns of old SNL than attempt to get through this mess.
