While Lester's variable output has been a lot more variable than most, nothing in his assorted canon quite prepares one for the full ghastliness here. Apparently starting from the assumption that Honky Tonk Freeway was one of the major movies of our time, this sets off in hot emulation, by rail this time rather than road. The plot has the luckless O'Keefe teaming up with D'Angelo (doing her by now depressingly familiar screwball kookie routine) on the trail of the usual cache of stolen goodies. Lester, whose soft spot for particularly witless capers has been well documented, tries to shore things up with as much trickery as he can muster, but it's a doomed exercise.
