JOYRIDE OVERVIEW: Wayne, a bartender and would-be killer who always chickens out at the last minute, nearly chokes his girl-friend to death while on a hike. After she runs off, he happens to see a couple committing a brutal murder and recognizes one of them as a regular at his bar. The dead man, Howard -- done in by his ex-wife, Carole, and her new lover, Lee -- is found in a stream by a Boy Scout who is dispassionately curious about the stinking corpse. The pathways coalesce when Wayne forces Lee and Carole into a meaningless drive inevitably complete with senseless murder. These are the actors that make Ketchums melodrama compelling, nasty but peculiarly irresistible. -- Publishers Weekly.
