Swayze plays a truck-driving fugitive wanted by the FBI for hauling illegal shipments of guns. With Travis in tow and Loaf as a no-good born-again Christian on his tail, this brainless road flick goes nowhere. It's enough to make you fall asleep at the wheel – or wish Swayze would pull over, drop the tough-guy act, and dirty dance.
