About the Movie
Screenwriter/electrician Abbe Wool makes her directorial debut with the offbeat road movie Roadside Prophets. Brooding factory worker Joe (X front man John Doe) takes a road trip in order to scatter the ashes of his co-worker Dave Coleman (David Anthony Marshall). Riding his vintage Harley Davidson, Joe leaves Los Angeles and heads for a small Nevada town called El Dorado to fulfill Dave's final wish. His journey is complicated by a small fry named Sam (the Beastie Boys' Adam Horovitz), a wannabe biker who continually lights off fireworks and nurtures an odd obsession with Motel 9. Joe also has to cope with making daily phone calls to Angie (voice of Sonna Chavez), his co-worker back in L.A. who is giving him sick days in exchange for the promise of a hot date. While traveling through the desert, Joe and Sam meet various eccentric characters played by the likes of David Carradine, John Cusack, Timothy Leary, and Arlo Guthrie. They eventually end up at their destination, which turns out to be a washed-up gambling town called Jackpot.
Don't pass it by!
How could I possibly be the first review? This movie is pretty darn good. Adam Horowitz is funny as he!!. It's a really fun movie and a lot better than all these "funny movies" with that fat kid with the curly hair. I didn't expect much from this movie but it really turned out to be a classic. A great cast of characters. Interesting and funny. A great watch.
This is a Great Movie
Existecialism at it's best!!!
You are what you watch. This move is awesome. Every time I watch it I see something new. It's kind of an Easy Rider for the 90's. The whole csat does a great job. The movie really puts you in the moment and makes you ponder life. John Cusak has a great scene as a "dine and ditcher". Don't miss it and watch it twice!
