Storyline

He may have just graduated but Nick has it all figured out - marriage, a lucrative career and a totally different lifestyle from that of his West Coast hippy parents. When he discovers that his future wife may be falling prey to a powerful and oversexed music producer, Nick is determined to fly to Toronto to win her back. Lifelong buds and dedicated surfers Tyler and Dime have other ideas for their staid best friend - the road trip adventure of his life. With only three days to make it to the MuchMusic Video Awards, the unlikely road warriors head off. Two sexy hitchhikers, Sasha and Jill, complicate matters and a series of accidents, orchestrated by a malevolent stranger, sabotage the trip turning Nick's future plans upside down. Written by Brad

Waste Of Film!
26 June 2004 | by pmartin-1See all my reviews

There are people out there with good ideas that don't have the budget or the equipment needed to make a movie....then crap like this comes along and it makes you want to stab yourself in your own eye with an icepick. I hate Avril Lavigne so her cameo is a negative point in the movie, then George from much music shows up in the movie too which makes me want to jump off a bridge....and then the kicker....anyone for fake punk? Too bad cause Sum 41 is gonna be on your screen being all retarded and stuff too. Terrific, this is why they should stick to playing music videos and not creating utter crap and subjecting people to it.
