Tagline: Everything you're looking for... More than you bargained for!

Plot: Mouse and Bird are a couple of sassy and sexy young hitchhikers who embark on a cross country trip in search of freedom, excitement, and independence. The lovely ladies use their bodies as currency and encounter a diverse array of libidinous folks on their journey.

My rating: 6/10

Will I watch it again? No.

Normally movies like this are REALLY bad.  What sets this one apart is some good performances (for what this is, mind you), the pacing and it's well shot.  The jokes are really jeuvenille.  I grow tired of slapstick-y, stupid cops.  The scene with the rapist is almost surreal.  It's not often that you get rape jokes in the movies.  The two leads, Jordan (Mouse) and Peabody (Bird), do a pretty good job as the free spirited teens.  Every chick in the picture gets naked and often. 

The orgy scene near the end goes on forever.  That's a good thing, not only because of the gratuitous nudity but also because there are some funny gags thrown in and some pretty groovy music playing.  If this sounds like your type of picture then you're going to love this one.  It's better made than most films of this type.
