Plot Summary

Free-spirited Jamie manages to convince her hesitant BFF Marian to go on an impromptu road trip from their hometown in Pennsylvania to Tallahassee, Florida.

The odd duo packs up Jamie’s trusty car “Grey Lightning” but their journey soon goes awry after a chance encounter with a bumbling crew of amateur criminals at a rest stop. The gang is in the midst of transporting illegal exotic animals to sell on the black market.

When a run-in with a state trooper forces the criminals to ditch their trailer full of contraband creatures, Jamie and Marian unwittingly become entwined in their hijinks. The girls end up unwillingly transporting the smuggled goods across state lines while being pursued by the gangsters and law enforcement officers.

What follows is a wacky misadventure filled with mistaken identities, car chases, demanding animals, and a healthy dose of disorder. The road trip quickly devolves into comical chaos but the experience ultimately strengthens Jamie and Marian’s lifelong friendship.

Audiences are in for a riotous ride with impressive visual gags and endlessly quotable lines that echo the Coen Brothers’ trademark humor.


With its powerhouse cast, crew, quirky characters and a great comic premise, “Drive-Away Dolls” has all the makings of an uproarious crowd-pleaser. Early reviews have praised the film’s screwball energy and promising performances, particularly from leads Qualley and Viswanathan.

It’ll be exciting to watch this dynamite duo light up the screens when “Drive-Away Dolls” finally zooms into theaters later this month after a long wait. So fasten your seatbelts for a wacky ride and get ready to enjoy Jamie and Marian’s mad misadventures!
