OVERALL: Talk about a snoozefest. Maybe it's time to take this old dog behind the barn.

Road Trip: Part One was the brainchild of Spuds Mackenzie, a dog famous for creating books finally dips his paws into film-making, and… it’s about what you’d expect.

Famous for such books as:

  • “Untitled book that was going to be done in a month”
  • “Unfinished book about space”
  • “Unstarted romance serial (under the pseudonym of Sandi Fyre Queen)”

Combine this with his countless more unfinished articles and programs, Spuds took this new medium and did things no one thought he could do- such as finish a project.

The plot is a bit confusing if you didn’t pay attention, but I will attempt to break it down so it will be easily understood:

A man gets into a car and drives off.

On the surface, that’s all there is to it, but if you dig deeper, there is hidden symbolism surrounding the movie.

To me, the man represents humanity. The house represents childhood, and the car represents death.

You’ll notice that the man walks out of the house, this could mean that by the time we see him, he is an adult.

It appears as if he is being unwillingly forced into the car.

As he gets into the car, it appears to drive itself down the highway, which represents the afterlife.

I believe the next installment will focus on the man’s decent into hell.

I hope Spuds starts being more overt with the meaning of his next film, or at least give us some more clues as to the direction of the film.

Would I recommend this film?

Yes, so long as the reader can handle heavy topics, such as discussions of life, death, and the slow decay of American capitalism.

Overall, although Spuds is still a hack writer, and he needs to learn cinematography, I would rate the movie a 11/100.

    It was a hot mess and smelled like the shit that comes from that dumb dog’s mouth. Good job on the review!
