Understandable why some people didn't like it - many need a strong story and moral direction to enjoy a film. But a classic road movie is like ...... well, a road. Characters are met along the way for no apparant reason, people meet and just hang because the road has brought them together, and the details of what they're escaping are minor to the general theme of escape. This is an un-Hollywood film that never even tries to be Hollywood, but luckily it doesn't try too hard not to be. It just is what it is naturally. Oh, and the two leads are both sweet and gorgeous and should be a couple.
