Hilarious adventures about a burned-out repo man's (Harry Dean Stanton) apprentice (Emilio Estevez). At the same time, a wasted driver (J. Frank Parnell) carries a highly toxic space alien in his Chevy Malibu's trunk while driving through the desert to Los Angeles. A lot of punk rock sendups that facetiously counterpoint middle class life at the time (they eat generically labelled food and drink) and all the while, loud punk rock fills up the soundtrack. Existential angst fuels most of the jokes like when Emilio is invited to "fly" in the alien-powered Chevy and his girl friend reminds him of their commitment with a "what about me?" "<Screw> that!" is his response.
