Threat advisory: Guarded - General risk of entertaining activities

Movie propaganda

They're four close friends. Some closer than others.

Meet Roy (Patrick Swayze) and Candy (Charlize Theron) and Lonnie Earl (Billy Bob Thornton) and Darlene (Natasha Richardson), two close married couples who thought they knew one another, until they decided to take their dream vacation together. Now, they're hitting the road in a brand new, fully loaded 4WD - and having the time of their lives - until a funny thing happens on the way to the monster truck show in Reno, Nevada USA. Lonnie Earl, it seems, has a thing for candy and when evidence of this starts to surface, this fun-filled road trip really heats up.
