A college student faces an impossible journey when he is left stranded in the desert, thousands of miles from home, with no money and only a few days left until Christmas.
When Jake is passed out in the desert, it mirrors what happened to the character Simba he voices in "The Lion King." Even down to the vulture, and vulture sounds!
I'm an elf!
In the very first scene, Ian is locked in a wall locker and passes Jake his mail, math test, and Dave Matthews passes downward through the lowest vent of the locker from the inside. When the locker door opens we can see that the lowest vent is level with the shelf, there is no way Ian could have reached above the shelf to pass those objects down through the vent.
