Kevin Costner, Jason Robards’ son, the ‘scallywag’ character off of The Breakfast Club, and er, Jesse off of Nutriaman – the Copasaw Creature do some pretty entertaining all-American coming of age road trippery, with a laundry/parachute confusion gag and amusing trying-to-tow-knackered-car behind-train tomfoolery. ’70s period soundtrack from Elton, Cream and, er, Blind Faith.

    This is a great film actually, I discovered it on the Monday night 90 minute film slot at nine on BBC 2 (when they used to do that) years ago. The parachute school bit is really funny, and the ending is very sweet. Should be better known. Goes to show you Kevin Costner was always much better playing real, normal guys than he was as boring, monolithic heroes.
