I've seen this movie three times now. The first was at the McHenry Outdoor Theater in McHenty, Illinois. It gets better each time. I see more than I had before. I've actually heard applause at two venues. I don't ever remember hearing applause at the conclusion of a movie.
Personally, I believe this movie will go a long way toward getting people out on the open road (gas-prices willing) and especially on 66 or other two lane highways.
It made a great statement about the coming of the interstates and impact on small towns. Even though the places and people were not real, they were a synthesis of what you will see and who you will meet on 66.
What's your take?
Keep on Down that Two Lane Highway. --RoadDog
