Two misfits decide to go on a trip to Alaska to find something better. I guess I am a sucker for this type of feel-good film

I found this movie to be very funny and sweet! It just makes one see how life can take you to great places even though along the path there can be many hardships. I liked this one a lot!

Pretty good actually, quite a bit dated, but still an interesting road movie, decent acting and a somewhat concievable story line.
