A movie about planes, cars and boats.


I'm gonna be honest here. I've only watched the first third of this movie so far. In that time I've seen some chic take a long plane ride and have boring pointless conversations with the people on board, then someone else is in another airport walking around for awhile before he gets murdered by a guy with big eyebrows, then there's a third friggin airport where someone gets shot, then the chic takes a long car ride with a guy in a silk shirt with see through sleeves and the most obnoxious hipster mustache I've ever seen, then she takes a looong boat ride and the camera man makes sure we get a good look at every random person on board, then it's a long walk through a market where we get to see a bunch of people who have no relevance to the movie, then it's another small walk, then it's another car ride, then they take a *beep* row boat down a river, then they stop for the night and the next day they take another long ass boat ride while some silly ass whimsical Disney music plays and we get lots of long shots of pretty trees and rocks, then they go over a waterfall while the happiest music you could imagine plays, then the chic wakes up in a posh hotel even though they're in the dead center of the *beep* amazon or something that can only be reached by 10 minutes of boring ass footage and travel montages, and then some surfer dude comes in and they have a conversation about nothing and for the next 3 minutes of the movie nothing happens. At the 40 minute mark I paused it to go take a dump and on the way back got distracted by a bug on my wall and forgot to finish watching it.

Hilarious ending to your "review"!
Though it sounds like the bugs gyrations were at least as interesting as the film!
You're correct, by the way-I recorded this on TIVO on "Antenna TV" months ago and have it saved as a nostalgic look back on the kind of films (including this one) that I caught on Saturday night "Creature Features"-style independent station shows from my youth.
If you had viewed more it it, I think that you would find that the travel sections in the end ad up to about 85-90% of the entire movie.
