Movie Info

Comedy falls as flat as a blowout in this film by Joseph Sargent about a down-to-earth trucker (Robert Blake) and the rich and looney witch (Dyan Cannon) he is forced to take on a haul from New York to L.A. Madie (Cannon) is running away from her money-grubbing husband who is conniving to get the most inexpensive divorce he can. Charlie (Blake) the trucker is under pressure from a ruthless creditor and is in desperate need of cash. As the mismatched duo continues in a stressful journey across country, sparks fly but fail to ignite much of anything along the way.

Critic Reviews for Coast to Coast

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (1)

The narrative strategy of Coast to Coast is to repeat the same scenes over and over again, in the hope that if they've worked once, who knows? Maybe they'll work again.

Audience Reviews for Coast to Coast


A predictable and annoying road comedy, Cannon is the most annoying, but the rest of the cast isn't great either. The best part was the ending, which was pretty funny even though it was predictable.
