Coast to Coast

0 Love It
An often very funny blend of road movie, buddy-buddy comedy and thriller parody, Johnson's film is short on visual delights (it was made for TV) but full of fine performances, strong throwaway lines (courtesy Stan Hey), and deft off-the-wall touches. Shea and Henry make for a good double act as the US air force man and the soul-crazy Liverpudlian DJ who find themselves pursued by cops and murderous mobsters as they travel from Merseyside, via the Lake District, to the Essex coast. Lively, sharp and fast, it also features a wondrous Tamla selection on the soundtrack.

It is still one of my top 3 movies, I lent it to a friend, she taped over it, now I'm devastated. Would love to see it again. The music is great, scenery fab, wicked story line. I agree with Stu 10 out of 10
