No cliche is left unturned in this film-making by numbers chalk and cheese buddy movie. Not completely dreadful, but you know exactly what's going to happen, life lesson by life lesson, every step of the way to the inevitable conclusion.

Dennis Hopper! I really could leave the review at that but I must say that this movie is fun as hell to watch. Sutherland and Hopper work very well together, and an appearance by Carol Kane makes the film that much better.
The plot alone is worth watching the movie! A former child-hippie turned FBI agent is forced to look at his past when he is put in charge of escorting a 60's counterculture icon across state lines to authorities in Washington.
Great movie, great acting! Also look for Richard Masur and Michael McKean who steal a bit of the spotlight from the the two leads, they are hilarious.
Flashback showcases Dennis Hopper's talent very nicely and the film makes me miss him that much more. See this movie, now!

Underrated film that had good acting, good story, some really funny moments. Hopper was great as always.

I loved this movie so much when I was a kid. I convinced my parents to let me watch it, regardless of the R rating, because they knew how much I liked Kiefer Sutherland. I said I was studying, to better my acting chops. Haha.

Sutherland and Hopper make one of the funniest buddy films I have seen in a very long time. Love their interactions.

They really tried hard in the late 80s to make a star out of Kiefer but this was a called third strike.

A fun movie for those of us from the 60's

Dennis Hopper plays a 1960s radical, on the run for a crime he didn't commit, and FBI man Kiefer Sutherland tries to bring Hopper to justice. A wonderful nostalgic look at the memorable 1960s era, in a heartwarming, interesting, and inspiring tale.
