I loved this movie. Saw it on Bravo and knew I had to own it.

This is one of those films which you can watch a dozen times and get something different out of it each time. Lots of guest appearances in this movie. I remember the first time I watched it and thought he looks familiar then realized it was Timothy Leary (Tune In, Turn On, and Drop Out Dude from the 60's) not long before he died. I had seen him on a lecture tour around the same time as the movie came out. Also people like Arlo Guthrie, David Carradine, Don Cheadle, John Cusack, etc. My favorite part is the entire section with David Carradine.

This is a road trip movie and if I didn't already know who had directed it, I would have thought it was a Robert Altman film. Lots of good weirdness and things for you wrap your head around. Quite a few "in" jokes that you might not catch the first time you see it. If you watched one time and thought it was okay, then watch it again.

Philosophical Must - See

A movie most people will love or hate. I think it is one of the greatest of all time, but it wont appeal to the hoi polloi. The story of a guy on a mission to scatter the ashes of a casual acquaintance in some unknown remote Nevada gambling town along with his nerdy sidekick. This movie is entertaining in a quirky way but the coolest thing about it is the people the bikers meet and the things that they say. Those people are the Roadside Prophets, and it is the words of those prophets that was the neatest think about the movie. The Prophets are Tim Leary, Arlo Guthrie, John Cusack, David Carradine, and more. This movie reminds me of Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance and Dead Poets Society wrapped together with the Firesign Theater. The motorcycle trip is a interesting carrier story line for the real message, which is a philosophical one. Do something with your life. Let your roman candle burn brightly. Don't waste your time sitting on the sidelines.

Abbe Wool is a genius.

It's not the destination that counts, it's the journey there.

A blue-collar joe seeking to fulfil a dead man's last wish finds himself sucked into a spiritual journey and questioning his own life.

This is a film that lends itself to being misunderstood. Previous comments have listed it as "rambling", and I can see where it might appear that way. Just remember the name of the film. It's not about the quest to bury ashes. It's about personal enlightenment and breaking away from a static, nowhere life.

Rich characters and counter-cultural icons litter this film. Definitely a find if you're a fan of movies like "Alice's Restaurant" and "Fritz the Cat".
