Plot Summary
When a tiny town in Florida is passed over by the new interstate highway, corrupt Mayor Kirby (William Devane) and his cronies plaster the freeway with illegal billboards that draw unsuspecting tourists to the mayor's tacky amusement park. The unwilling visitors include squabbling suburban parents Snapper (Howard Hesseman) and Ericka (Teri Garr), despondent waitress Carmen (Beverly D'Angelo), aspiring children's book author Duane (Beau Bridges) and a drug-addled hitchhiker (Daniel Stern).
