 Synopsis:  All roads lead to excitement with Kurt Russell in Breakdown, the non-stop thrill ride that's "a movie of nerve-frying intensity ... Kurt Russell's best performance yet" (Rex Reed, New York Observer). Jeff Tayler (Russell) and his wife Amy (Kathleen Quinlan) are headed to a new life in California when their car's engine dies on a remote highway. Amy accepts a ride from a helpfull trucker (J.T. Walsh) while Jeff waits with the car. But when Jeff shows up at the agreed Rendezvous, he finds his wife's not there. The locals aren't talking; the police aren't much help. With no one to turn to, Jeff battles his worst fears and begins a desperate, danger-ridden search to find Amy - before it's to late!
 Other Thoughts:  I love this movie: it has a great plot, it has great sound, it's very exciting. Buy this movie; you won't be disappointed!
