Interstate 60: Episodes Of The Road (2002)
Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database
Neal Oliver is a young artist, but his father doesn't like his choice and wants him to go to Oxford. Everything changes after Neal's meeting with O.W.Grant, who grants exactly one wish per person, as his name suggests. Neal wishes for answers, and so he must travel to the nonexistent Danver by the nonexistent Interstate 60. In this trip he hopes to find the girl of his dreams, following the trail of her photos on the advertising stands along the route. Many encounters await him ahead. Will he receive what he asked for?
It began as a wish, became an adventure, and ended as the ultimate road trip.

More Movie Taglines:
- It began as a wish, became an adventure, and ended as the ultimate road trip.
- All your answers will be questioned.
- No rules, no boundaries.
- Get off on...Interstate 60.
- Lynn Linden: What? Something wrong with the way I fucking talk? Neal Oliver: No, no, no no no... I mean yes. Yes, you make Mike Tyson sound like an Oxford graduate.
Neal Oliver: [voice over] As I said, it all started on my 22nd birthday, specifically here on my traditional birthday lunch. As always my father had picked the restaurant. Attending were the usual suspects: Sally, who my parents actually liked, maybe even more than I did; my dad, Daniel, attorney-at-law; my mom, Marlene, the attorney's wife; and my sister and best-friend, Nancy, put on earth by the Grace of God to keep me from going insane.
Neal Oliver: [voice over] I worked graveyard shift at a grocery warehouse, filling orders for the trucks to take to the various stores in the morning. I liked it for three reasons: I'd gotten the job on my own, it paid enough that I did not have to ask the old man for cash, and it annoyed Daniel that his son was even working at such a low class job.
Bob Cody: Hey, Bob Cody. I don't drive, and I don't like to hitchhike. When I hitchhike I am at the mercy of the driver. But when I pay for the ride, I'm the employer, and I call the shots. That's how I like it. So you want to work for me? Neal Oliver: Well, I'm going to Danver. I wouldn't mind making some money. Bob Cody: Good. I'm going to Renburg. It's on your way. Here's my proposition. You pay for gas, pay for your meal. No alcohol while you're on payroll. I pick the radio stations. I initiate all conversations. I'll pay you $10 cash every hour, and the mileage money when we get to Renburg. In all other matters, you play straight with me, I'll play straight with you. So do we have a contract? Neal Oliver: We have a contract. Bob Cody: So who's my new employee? Neal Oliver: Neal Oliver. Bob Cody: Mr. Oliver, you may call me "Mr. Cody" or "Sir". Neal Oliver: You've got it, Sir.
Neal Oliver: [voice over] Mr. Cody had rather unique tastes in audio stimulation. Woman on radio: The choice is clear. The Arion 620, the American-made car for the American driver. Bob Cody: That's a lie. The Arion engines are made in Japan. Man on radio: Kill Signal, the movie everyone's talking about, from Weber Films. Bob Cody: [laughs] That's another lie. You're not talking about it. Another man on radio: We're the U.S. post office, and we care. Bob Cody: Oh! That's the biggest whopper of all.
- When Neal first sees his birthday gift, a red BMW convertible, the music wanders to the same few notes as in _Back To the Future (1985)_ (also written by Bob Gale) when Marty opens the garage to see his new truck.
Throughout the opening sequence there are references to X-men and Marvel comics. The lead male is also Cyclops in the new X-Men movies.
The character of O.W. Grant is a compilation of many different trickster figures in world mythologies. It is stated that he is half-leprechaun, which is shown in his red hair. Also, the monkey pipe is a reference to the Monkey figure of Eastern mythologies. The pipes smoke can also be interpreted as a reference to Djinni.
When Neal and O.W. Grant are approaching interstate 60, O.W. says, "There's a signpost up ahead." This is a famous line from "The Twilight Zone" (1959).
During the perception test scene, Christopher Lloyd was unable to perform the trick shuffles, and a professional magician was called in to double.
