Saw it years ago and bought it on disc. It's a must own! Has so many messages that link together to sum it all up in the end. Keeps you on your toes, no lag time or boring parts, and is totally entertaining with all star cast. I reccommend it highly if you need a good dialogue movie with thought!

Be ready to receive many vignettes about many different people from both sides of the ''track.'' It centers around Mack (Kline) and Simon (Glover) who meet under trying conditions. Mack believes that Simon could have possibly saved his life while on the dark streets of LA. He is stranded after his car stalls while taking a ''short cut'' home from a Lakers game. Simon is just doing his job as a Tow Truck Operator and has to talk a gang of local youths out of harming Mack, and possibly himself. The story follows both men and the subplots of each. Yes, the Grand Canyon does play a part in the movie, albeit, philosophically. The movie is very well done and has some memorable moments. The soundtrack adds a hipnotic attraction without overwhelming the dialogue. Some of the many scenes can loose you if you don't pay attention. Be alert, or you may get lost. I thoroughly enjoyed the movie. It made me think seriously about my own life in regards to the direction I might travel.

Lawrence Kasdan, the director of the Big Chill, succeeds in telling a story that weaves between three plotlines about people living in L.A. Mack (Kevin Kline) is an immigration attorney coming home from a Lakers game and when his car breaks down a gang of hoods threatens to do him harm. He is rescued by a tow truck driver named Simon (Danny Glover), who immediately takes a liking to Mack, and tells Mack his views on life over breakfast. Mack offers to help Simon out by helping his sister move to an apartment in a better section of town. He also helps by introducing him to his secretary and one time mistress’s (Mary-Louise Parker) friend Jane (Alfre Woodard). Mack’s wife Claire (Mary McDonnell) finds an abandoned baby while jogging and ponders the idea of keeping it, while her son Roberto (Jeremy Sisto) is away at camp. There are a lot of different stories woven into one basic idea that is pretty thought provoking and sometimes you can’t tell what might be a dream and what is supposed to be real. Pay attention. Oh and the soundtrack by James Newton Howard is really good too. You hear a lot of the dramatic music that you hear in car commercials these days.
