Along For The Ride Movie Review
The story is utterly moronic -- Patrick Swayze and Melanie Griffith play old flames. In keeping with all of Melanie Griffith's oeuvre, she's a bit crazy, of course. In fact, she's certified schizophrenic, which makes her insistence that she and the Swayzak track down their long lost illegitimate child all the more harrowing. And Penelope Ann Miller, playing a psychotherapist and Swayze's character's wife, figures that her husband will get so hot and bothered by the Griffith and her wanton ways that she needs to chase after them. And of course, Miller turns out to be no more stable than Griffith.
To write any more about Along for the Ride is to insult both the reader and myself. Suffice it to say that this "dramedy" is neither dramatic nor comedic, forgettable pap that I had to do a little research on just to make absolutely sure I really had seen it before. Now that's making an impact.
