The irreverent laughs come thick and fast in this boisterous yet surprisingly touching road movie. Boasting deliciously absurd incidents, quick-fire scripting and great central performances, this comedy sees uptight architect Peter trying to get home to LA for his first child's birth. However, a supposedly routine journey becomes a nightmare when he collides with eccentric wannabe-actor Ethan at the airport and develops an instant hatred for the boorish guy. Not only does Ethan's subsequent behaviour get them both banned from flying, but then events force Peter to accept his offer of a lift in his hire car. Naturally, everything that could go wrong does, leaving the odd couple bickering their way across the country in the worst ride of Peter's life.
Jim Carrey uses his comic skill to great, dark effect as the delusional Cable Guy, whose routine installations become desperate ploys for friendship.
