TRUCKER

What You Need To Know:

TRUCKER is a miserable, low life movie that leads up to a tepid reconciliation between a mother and a son. Diane is a trucker and has a son named Peter whom she abandoned as a baby. Her husband Len is now dying of cancer, and so Diane takes Peter on a long haul with her to Oklahoma. Diane is still not interested in being a mother and does not want a child in her life. Complicating the situation is a neighbor who is married, wants to sleep with Diane, and spends an inordinate amount time with her.

TRUCKER is seriously flawed dramatically. There is no foreshadowing and little development, and the characters are unreal and more often than not just stereotypes. However, the movie does have some moral points, especially the reconciliation at the end and the positive guidance that Len as a father gives to his son Peter. What is extremely annoying is the foul language that is put into Peter’s eleven-year-old mouth, and that he takes a baseball bat to one of the characters. There is explicit sex and rape. Overall, the movie is not worth the price of admission.

More Detail:

RUCKER is a miserable, low life movie that leads up to a tepid reconciliation between a mother and a son. The movie opens with an explicit sex scene, and although both parties are covered, the moral quality of the movie seems to stay at this same level until the very end.

Diane, the woman in the sex scene, is a trucker who is used to getting her own way and having one-night stands. The audience soon discovers, that Diane has a son named Peter whom she abandoned as a baby. Her husband Len is now dying of cancer, and his girlfriend Jenny does not have the time to take care of Peter. Jenny drops Peter off at Diane’s house, and Diane takes him on a long haul with her to Oklahoma.

Along the way, Diane and Peter call each other names, some of which are quite disgusting. Peter is only eleven years-old, but he is angry with his mother for abandoning him. She is still not interested in being a mother and does not want a child in her life. Complicating the situation is Runner, a neighbor who is married, wants to sleep with Diane and spends an inordinate amount time with her.

Although this movie has won a number of prizes, it is seriously flawed dramatically. The dialogue is static in many places and quite often utilizes just cursing. There is no foreshadowing and little development, and the characters are unreal and often just stereotypes. The music is a squeaky, poor substitute for country music. There is very little to enjoy in this movie, and the fact that it has gotten so many awards goes to prove the impoverished mind of the humanist community.

That being said, the movie does have some moral points, especially the reconciliation at the end and the positive guidance that Len as a father gives to his son Peter. What is extremely annoying is the foul language that is put into Peter’s eleven-year-old mouth, and that he takes a baseball bat to one of the characters. There is also explicit sex and rape. Overall, the movie is not worth the price of admission nor the time it takes to watch it.
