You won't bust a gut laughing, but there are some good cracks in this silly story, which follows Bubble Boy Jake Gyllenhaal's attempt at a California to Niagara Falls road trip without getting popped. He's heading east to stop the wedding of Heather Graham look-alike Marley Shelton, his hottie next-door neighbor who touched the heart inside the boy inside the bubble.
Bikers, circus freaks and other assorted misfits on Gyllenhaal's big, bouncy adventure don't add much. But Gyllenhaal's charm and Swoosie Kurtz, as the boy's hilarious overprotective, Jesus-loving mom, are enough to make you wanna endure the ride.
