I really don't know what to say about this comedy directed by Brent Huff. A story presented as a dark comedy about three salesmen from Detroit who come to Los Angeles for a two week seminar and get themselves involved in a world of trouble when their 'fun' snowballs into a roller-coaster ride of secrets, guilt, peer pressure and stupidity, was funny at the moments! Away from their wives and children, Bobby, Jerry and his boss Howard are tempted by beautiful women and alcohol in the hotel bar. Bobby, a family man, tries to avoid the "rule 100 miles" (if you are within 100 miles of your home, you are free to do as you please). While Jerry and Howard spend their free time chasing girls, Bobby is dedicated to spend some time with the outdoor sporting activities. There he meets Monica, a gorgeous hotel maid...

Screenplay had its moments, that is a fact, but altogether wasn't fulfilling... still, I could not give it a lower rating than 60% because I did laugh. Casting wasn't perfect but Jake Weber, Maria Bello, David Thornton, Michael McKean, Nick Chinlund and Shawn Huff, did enough not to be blamed.
Nothing special, but good for lonely nights.

5.5/10. Better than I was expecting. The cast works well together and do a fine job. The writing was very humorous at times. It also did drag from time to time, but overall not to bad. Maria Bello gives a sincere performance.

Not a great movie by any stretch but a good plot and storyline. This movie is little corny (70's style) but still interesting enough to keep you watching.

Not very much to recommend this movie except Maria Bello. I like her as an actress. However, in general, the movie has no redeeming social value. Not even worth renting from the library...

A complete waste of time, unlikeable characters and a stupid plot. Don't bother.

Pretty sure I did watch this. But it wasn't memorably good nor memmorably bad.

Only interested in this movie because the DVD packaging design is exactly that of "Gone in 60 Seconds" right down to the font choices and color schemes. Same formula, different variables.

Wow, that cover art is one of the most blatant rip-offs I've ever seen.
