"...Hughes has supplied some fresh, sparkling dialogue and sharply defined roles for his actors....O'Neill has that valuable gift of projecting warmth and strength, anchoring a truly zany sense of humor..."
A light-hearted comedy about how an upper-class kid and his mom's working- class boyfriend try to get along on their very long drive home from the son's boarding school at Thanksgiving. Together, they set out on a road trip filled with mayhem, misadventure, and understanding.
A well-to-do but snobbish adolescent learns about life and growing up during a cross-country trip home from boarding school with his mother's working-class boyfriend.
