Plot Summary

Smart, successful and sexy, Michael Dawson (Jamie Foxx) is a Chicago businessman with a bright future and a beautiful fiancee, Rae (Nia Long). On a romantic vacation to the Grand Canyon, the young lovers tear up the highway in Michael’s vintage sports car, purchased on a whim in Arizona. Life is perfect. But there’s a catch, Rae doesn’t know that the car was purchased with the money they saved to buy a home. And when she discovers Michael’s dirty little secret, she dumps him on the spot. Dead-set on returning to Chicago immediately to start her new life, Rae hitches a ride with some good ol’ boys to the Las Vegas airport. Alone in the boonies with only the car he loves, Michael is determined to get Rae back – a simple task, or so he thinks.
