American Beer

In this lively road picture, four Canadian lads in their early '20s go for a cross-country jaunt in a 1966 Corvair to have one last great adventure. Their lark leads them to the U.S. badlands. While cruising through a particularly desolate region, the Corvair breaks down. Desperately needing a particular part, the four disparate youths decide to separate and later return. Curt, the car's owner, elects to remain behind to guard the vehicle. He ends up cornered by a poetic quasi-philosophical fellow who fancies himself a modern-day Jack Kerouac. Drew, the sensitive one, gets lucky right off the bat. No sooner does he begin hitchhiking than he is picked up by his former high-school gym teacher who is on vacation with his family. Unfortunately, Drew hated his gym teacher and quickly comes to equally despise the teacher's fat and doltish son. Pistol-packing, macho Al ends up taking advantage of an auto garage robbery in progress. Martin lands at a redneck bar where the patrons mistake him for Ferris Bueller. Naturally Martin tries to tell them that he is neither the character nor actor Matthew Broderick who played Ferris, but the beer drinking good-ol' boys refuse to believe him and spend their time goading him into making humorous remarks.
