Get ready to thoroughly enjoy yourself in spite of envious deviants out there who didn't like this movie! It's full of hilarious, snappy dialogue, awesomely delivered by the likes of Jeremy Piven and John McGinley (in stellar supporting parts) as well as Jared Leto and Jake Gyllenhaal who have amazingly great chemistry together, combined with left of center morality.

If you want to watch this movie because you're a fan of Kurt Cobain - don't bother. However, if you want to go for a frolic in the fields or leave your inhibitions at the door of the "Dan D. Fine", then this movie is a great ride that will not disappoint! (And you'll get all my esoteric references too)

Highway (James Cox, 2002)
There are any number of reasons to watch James Cox's first feature film, Highway (not least of which because Cox directed one of 2003's most talked-about and controversial films, Wonderland). It's hard to say the film itself is one of them, oddly enough.
It centers around two stoned-out buddies, Pilot (the always wonderful Jake Gyllenhaal) and Jack (Jared Leto, looking for all the world like Charlie Sheen in Repo Man here). Jack, the womanizer, has found himself in bed with the wrong woman, the trophy wife of a mob boss, and needs to get out of Las Vegas. He and Pilot head for Seattle after one of the most surreal drug buys in all of film (the dealer played by Jeremy Piven, recently seen in Black Hawk Down and Very Bad Things, deserves a film all to himself). Along the way, they find themselves repeatedly entangled with a homeless runaway (Selma Blair) and an old hippie trying to get to Seattle for the Kurt Cobain vigil (John C. McGinley). The stage is set, and the movie makes its Easy Rider-esque way through the West.
The main reason to see this movie is that Jake Gyllenhaal and Jared Leto are fantastic actors. Blair (soon to be in the much-hyped Hellboy) and McGinley make great foils for the two. I'd be hard-pressed to call this a comedy, but it does have its share of uncomfortably funny lines. It ends up, however, being (as odd as this sounds) a lighthearted tale about the myriad ways in which one's dreams can be shattered.
Did I like it? I still haven't figured that out. Would I recommend it? Without hesitation. *** ½

Highway is a quirky indy road movie (there is even a Jack Kerouac quote at the end of the film)which I found to be pretty good: sadly tragic characters, bittersweet ending, lessons learned. Jared Leto and Jake Gyllenhaal are the film -- their portrayal of boyhood friends tightly bonded and loyal to each other propels the film along. There are two hilarious and great supporting performances given by Piven and McGinley, drug dealer and aging hippy, respectively. And for those of you who are Leto fans, this is a must-not miss movie -- Jared Leto in this movie is hot, horny and sexy! His charisma and body are irresistably smoking hot!

This is a good movie. Jared Leto is pretty good lookin' as is Jake Gyllenhaal. Selma Blair is great in her character ...well heck they all are! This is set back in the time of when Kurt Cobain committed suicide. If you like any of these actors, I suggest you watch it. It's fun! Even Jeremy Piven is great in this and it perhaps gave him a bit of practice for his Smokin' Aces character!! Sexual content and drug references.

This movie is a classic road trip movie with a twist. Jared Leto plays an amazingly good looking womanizer just looking for a shall we say "release" lol Jake plays a drug dealer that likes to sample his products and can't get a rise. They encounter some great character on their road trip. It's a funny and at times touching story with a friendship at the heart.

A trippy road trip movie about two slacker barely adult guys who have fled the area where they live after being threatened by a thug and his henchmen after one of the men slept with his wife. This movie had such promise on paper two actors who were on the verge of stardom but they had to star in this clunker. It's a chase movie, a drug filled movie, a youth gone wild movie and possibly one of the dumber subplots of the film it's an alligator boy movie. I was bored 45 minutes in but tried to watch it and I even really wanted to like it but it just got sillier as time went on.

Leto is a horny poolboy who has had a fling with his employers wife who's husband is a local and rich thug and when he finds out he wants Leto dead. Leto grabs his loser best friend, a very young looking Jake Gyllenhaal who's goal in life is to get high and have sex and the two leave town after a run in with some of the thugs henchmen and decide to hit the road and then decide to go places and see things and the death of Kurt Cobain makes them want to go west. And then it gets worse. Real worse.

I can not believe how harsh critics have been about this movie! I've never seen anything like it. As always, Jared Leto gets as many freaking fingers I can possibly put up for his performance. He was intense and amazing. Jake Gyllenhaal was also wonderful, bringing light undertones to a would-be dark and dubious character. I thought that film critics were not paying attention and did not catch some beautiful moments in the film.
PS:I reccomend REQUIEM FOR A DREAM to ANYONE!!!
