The Ride

Craig Boyd and Michael Shannon do competent, low-key versions of John Travolta's and Samuel Jackson's Pulp Fiction characters in this slow though not unfunny crime comedy (1997) written by Kris Kondrad and directed by Jeff Myers. The coincidence-laden plot unites a number of aspiring and reluctant criminals in the pursuit of a convertible that belongs to a troubled young fundamentalist who's got relationship problems. But after a private investigator who's modeled himself after fictional gumshoes gets involved, the tone yo-yos from scene to scene as Myers alternates contrived grittiness with over-the-top reflexive styling—and it's hard to keep readjusting.
