Elevator Pitch A small time drug dealer in Denver is robbed of his takings and so is in debt to his supplier. They make a deal that he will go to Mexico and pick up a shipment in payment, and in order to do so he teams up with a stripper and a young man who live in his apartment block and a female teenage runaway, and together they hire an RV and pose as a family in order to deceive the border guards.
Content A lot of time on the road in the RV, jokes based on the fact that they are a bunch of disfunctional people pretending to be a conventional family. Some action involving the Mexican drug suppliers. Although drugs feature, none are taken, nor is any alcohol drunk or if it comes to that any smoking but JA gets down to her underwear a couple of times and there is a view of male genitalia.
A View It is difficult for a comedy ever to get a positive rating on Rotten Tomatoes, but this came close, and was well liked by the general public, and made a lot of money. For me it easily passed the Mark Kermode ‘six laughs test’, so good for a view if you are not easily shocked.
