This shrill, static farce takes place at an “inspiration point” above Los Angeles, where five cars have assembled to pass the lunch hour. A hysterical woman in a VW Bug haplessly tries to commit suicide; a steroidal man in a luxury SUV (Baldwin) screws a petulant blond in a maid’s outfit; his depressive wife (Lake) and her girlfriend (Oteri) watch from another car and plot violent revenge. Stuck with this disagreeable crew in their stationary vehicles—the film never ventures from its purgatorial overlook—you pray, in vain, for Park to shift into drive and go somewhere.
