I had to post this because I've been reading some so so reviews and I just can't relate to any of them. I think most of the people writing the reviews have missed something fundamental which is (I think) Pleasure Drivers is much more of an art film than your standard b-movie thriller. Lots of people have posted that the movie's too slow -- that's what I love about it. I think its strangeness makes it really unique and you get sucked in, in ways you don't understand and have to see it again. I think it's really too bad that this movie is being judged by what it isn't (a slick, stupid, fast paced thriller) instead of what it is, which for me was this really austere investigation of morals and motivation, or I don't even know, but it feels like it's doing a lot more than like say Kill Bill. I'm sure if it get released in Europe (if it hasn't already) it'll do much better. Why do we have to relate to the people in it? I had so much fun just watching all these trashy people get more and more messed up. The one thing I didn't like was the whole "lesbian" hit woman. That was really underdeveloped, but whatever,it's like this ultra cheap movie and they probably ran out of money or something. I don't know about you but when I see a movie that's this different it makes me feel alive and excited. Hopefully these people will get more money for their next project.

This is one of the most bizarre films i have seen, but it is weirdly entertaining. The acting isn't brilliant and it is sometimes difficult to keep up as there are several story lines going on at once, of which some don't seem to actually get resolved? It is worth watching for the strange experience!

What the heck did I just watch? 30 April 2007
By John Kolecki - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Three seperate stories seemingly unconnected all come together in this delightfully awful rat crap of a movie. Decent names make up the cast... but this is a prime example of instead of getting a nice casserole, where the cast meshes well with each other, you get peanut butter on steak with brussel spouts rinse with listerine and chase down with orange juice.

Billy Zane is completely useless as the preacher's lieutenant. Lauren Holly... I have no idea... she's definitely trashy.. but the performance is still crap... she looked like she wanted to jump MeatLoaf's bones in the trailer... which was equally creepy. Angus has gotten waaaay FAT. He was a sad mix of Dr. Frasier Crane and Jeff Goldblum.(Jurassic/Independence Day performances) All the vocabulary and idiosyncracies of both and none of the positive attributes. What a crap character. The single redeeming performance of this movie was Lacey Chabert. Her character was a simple, one dimensional slut, and she played it really well. (Smokin' bod didn't hurt either) All the other performances were completely forgettable. The story is, at best, unfinished and more accurately hap-hazard and lame. 1 star, and that primarily goes Lacey's performance. I've been subjected to worse.

Good to the halfway mark 2 Jan. 2009
By screenplay writer (and lawn care specialist) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
The first half of this movie is well-done: good acting, good direction, surprising dialogue and surprising changes of fortune. The movie fell apart for me midway through when two of the main characters get into an argument following an unconsummated adult encounter in a hotel room. Their argument is bitter, nearly endless, and makes you dislike the more spiteful of the two characters intensely.

The first half of the movie balances entertainment and realism well. The second half of the movie loses the balance and is a chore to watch, primarily as one of the main characters, a college instructor, becomes whining, depressive, and intolerable.

More Haynes' Fault than Sekula 16 Jan. 2011
By The D.A - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
At first glance,I truly believed that The Pleasure Drivers would be a solid work of cinema...I mean,it's directed by Andrzej Sekula,Tarantinos' cinematographer for Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction,which nearly 20 years and several films later are still considered by many to be Tarantinos' greatest works.Maybe he and "writer" Adam Haynes have given us at least a 3 star film,hmm?

Nnnnnnnope.

Sekula successfully replicates his great,unique style of cinematography we first saw those many years ago.I won't try to take that away from him,because I can't...he is truly gifted in that aspect (watch 2009's "Armored").But between him and the truly incompetent "writer" Adam Haynes,the film comes across as a bad attempt at ripping off QT's knack for organic,original,realistic,smoooth,insert-more-positive-adjectives-here dialogue and direction.In trying to cop QT's "different stories that intertwine" theme from Pulp Fiction,Haynes instead produces incoherent plots,clumsy dialogue and senseless twists,such as the Wordless Lesbian Assassin/Sodomizer (yeah,you read right).In a nutshell,it's the kind of movie that would have been perfect for Mystery Science Theater 3000.

As disjointed and unfocused as it is,the cast and (some of) the acting is strong...they just weren't working with a script that could make the most of their talents.As the other critics here have said,Lacey Chabert's performance was particularly strong.Seeing her as a wise-beyond-her-years child in Party of Five,a high school ditz in Mean Girls,and now a very convincing seductive siren/prostitute in The Pleasure Drivers serves to prove her versatility and talent as an actress.Meat Loaf does what he can with what little role he has...a trailer dwelling drug addled hepatitis sufferer...and does it pretty well.Angus McFayden is definitely solid as a paranoid college professor with a crumbling marriage and an Oedipal complex,who hits the road with Chaberts' character.Lauren Holly and Angelo Spizzirri fall behind as a caretaker and the mentally afflicted man under her care,which is not to say they are not talented...again,they weren't working with much in Haynes' script.

Sekula might actually be a good director...you just can't quite tell since he was directing a good cast that had a subpar script.Too bad.

Lacey Chabert 22 Dec. 2012

Lacey Chabert was the only reason this movie was purchased. That one scene wasn't the only good thing about this movie.
