If you knew from the time you were a small child you were living under the cloud of a curse -- that you were going to die on your  25th birthday -- how would you live your life? Charlie Silvercloud III (Robert A. Guthrie) faces that situation in Expiration Date, a black comedy by director Rick Stevenson. Both Charlie's father and his grandfather died on their 25th birthdays, in accidents involving ... milk trucks. That's right, milk trucks. Charlie's grandfather was plowed down in the middle of his street, on the way to his own birthday party. Charlie's father, hoping to avoid the same fate, spent his birthday on a boat -- only to be taken out by a renegade milk truck that ran off the road, landing right on top of his boat. Talk about bad luck.
