"Three For the Road" was the first feature I wrote (after "My Champion") and starred Charlie Sheen, his next picture after "Platoon." I was pretty excited when I went to see him on location and he said, "Forget it - the reason I did this movie was I loved your script, but they've re-written it and it sucks now." I thought he was kidding. I can verify the only funny things in "Three For The Road" is the stuff I wrote. I wasn't invited to a screening of the film, so I bought a ticket on opening night at the Egyptian theatre in Hollywood there were only 8 people in the 3000-seat theater. A disaster. The reviews said, "whoever wrote this should go back to film school." I couldn't picket the theater and say "They screwed up my script!" so I did the next best thing - started directing my own films."
"Charlie was amazing sane and focused. A funny guy. I'm just sorry I wasn't directing the film. But what can you do? He's gone through some wild days since then, but he seems to be on the other side of that. He and his brother Emilio are talented filmmakers - wish they had more material that was up to their potential"
"It's the story of A crafty political aide and his soft-spoken pal are assigned the job of delivering a senator's out-of-control teenage daughter to an institution"
