A not entirely voluntary carpool with gambler Steve (Martin), the affectionate cinemaniac Malcolm (Lewis), his mastiff Mr. Bascomb and the emerging singer Terry crosses in this roadmovie the United States on the way to their dream destination Hollywood. In front of a colorful scenery the duo Martin-Lewis is in fully cry in their last film together. Once again they are vocally and gag-wise in top form, dedicating themselves to “television fugitives and movie fans” in the whole world. Introduction: Adrian Martin
