OK
This strange collaboration of Zalman King, Alan Rudolph, and Meat Loaf stands as one of cinema's big, cult oddities -- giving us the Loaf as a Texas beer trucker (hauling Shiner, by the way) who becomes a roadie in order to impress a groupie he encounters.

If only there were more musical bits (check the cast list!) -- and the lead actors didn't jabber constantly over them.
