Jonathan Demme’s screwball, thrift-shop styled take on the ‘yuppie nightmare’ movie sees Jeff Daniels’ buttoned-up New York office worker Charlie meet Melanie Griffith’s mercurial Audrey one lunch hour, and get whisked into a riotous interstate road trip that opens his eyes to the multitude of people and places, ethnicities and cultures that make up the melting pot of America.
