I can't believe I hadn't heard of this before! I don't really know how to describe it. It's like a modern day fairy tale. I really like mythology, and that's what got my attention. It starts out with two guys talking at a bar about the lack of mythical beings in American myths. Then another guy joins the conversation saying that this isn't true, America is just too young for these beings to have gotten around enough for people to know about them.
James Marsden's character is living in his father's shadow and just wants an answer to his life. Gary Oldman plays O. W. Grant (One Wish Grant) and he hears Marsden's wish for an answer. Marsden gets sent to deliver a package across the country on Interstate 60, a fictional highway.
I really love how this movie makes you think and question what you think you know about things. It's funny and entertaining, it's original and creative. It's just a good movie. I can't believe I hadn't heard of it.
This is definitely going to be added to my DVD collection!
