The Last Detail

Highly entertaining "road movie" with Jack Nicholson

Hal Ashby 1974, USA, 100 mins.

  Lots of profanity

Nominated for three Academy awards

With Jack Nicholson, Otis Young and Randy Quaid

A hugely enjoyable and deftly directed film with first-class performances from the leading actors. Predating One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest by a couple of years it features Jack Nicholson and Otis Young as naval ratings charged with escorting a criminal colleague to a naval prison half way across the country. They try to show the miserable offender a good time on the way.
