Here is a cool lighthearted story that comes once in a while and maybe many of you missed this one. a little warning here it is shot in black, the director saw the story only in black and white. The screenwriter has written this 9 years ago and got pushed a side by the director due that he was shooting other movies. He went back to it and decided to do it. He put in Bruce Dern in it because he only saw him in the part. This story is a different kind of road trip. The thing is almost every one has taken a road trip with their family, sometimes it is a good thing sometimes it is not. The thing is that most people has family across the country at some point to an other there is some obstacle along the way. a delay in Rapid City a stay in a hospital, where Woody’s wife decided to come in a stay with family there for a day or two. Soon enough Davis’s brother shows up. There is quiet of sex scandal of sorts and other little secret getting out. The other when the people of the town and the family starts to know that Woody is going to get a million dollars every body want a piece of that action. Word of advice here if you ever win the lottery and mark my words, do not tell anybody you won because they will have the balls to ask you for money even some friend that you saw 15 years ago will reappear and ask you for money Trust me on that. Anyway This is a film that most people will relate to and enjoy this little jewel of a movie.
