Time Out says

Nick (Robbins) and Ann (Preston) play husband-and-wife games in bed. He thinks she's a fat pig; she wants a divorce. Who can spin it out longest? Anyway, next day Nick gets off a late working assignment, only to catch Ann in bed with his boss (McKean). Stunned, he drives away, anywhere - to a hold-up at a red light in slumtown. It's T Paul (Lawrence) wanting Nick's wallet, waving a gun in his face. With a manic laugh and his foot on the gas, Nick defenestrates the money and drives the hapless sometime criminal to the Arizona desert for a round of mismatched comic capers. No surprises here. There are nods to the race issue, but this isn't exactly Tom Wolfe, and though some jokes work, more don't.
