| Episodic but Funny
A Yuppie couple leaves its jobs, liquidates its assets, and buys an RV, intent on living on the road like their idols in "Easy Rider." Things don't go as planned because of a single event. That single event is so contrived and unbelievably stupid that one doesn't feel any sympathy for the couple. However, one can laugh at them. Brooks could be Woody Allen's irritable cousin in terms of his neurotic behavior and impatience. Like Allen's films prior to "Annie Hall," this one is episodic, and some of the episodes are quite funny. It doesn't quite come together as a satisfying whole, but the journey is worth taking, and Brooks knows not to overstay his welcome.
