Storyline

In Los Angeles, there is the Golden Triangle Freeway Interchange. The 5, 405, and 10 all crossover each other. As long as the traffic can move through the Triangle, the commute runs smooth. On this faithful morning, 3 accidents happen, simultaneously, causing all of Los Angeles to gridlock, trapping cars on the freeways for the entire day. A TV Movie in the style of Love Boat and Fantasy Island, multiple stories intersect with each other. Funny scenes, cute stories. Written by David

Floyd 'Snake' Kraslowski: [Speaking urgently on the radio] Speed-O, this woman's having a baby in my cab! I don't know anything about having a baby!
Speed-O: Calm down Snake! You sound like Butterfly McQueen!
[Thinks for a moment]
Speed-O: Snake, this is Mr. Reinhardt, I think you two better get to know each other!

Love, angst, rock'n roll, baby born, all on the freeway!
29 August 2000 | by dpittsSee all my reviews

This is definitely a guilty-pleasure movie. Such a stellar cast! I mean, Ed McMahon!! The rock band that gets stuck in the traffic jam and ends up playing to the crowd out of the back of their truck--IT'S CLASSIC!
