A Perfect Getaway

Synopsis: For their honeymoon, newlyweds Cliff and Cydney head to the tropical islands of Hawaii. While journeying through the paradisaical countryside the couple encounters Kale and Cleo, two disgruntled hitchhikers and Nick and Gina, two wild but well-meaning spirits who help guide them through the lush jungles. The picturesque waterfalls and scenic mountainsides quickly give way to terror when Cliff and Cydney learn of a grisly murder that occurred nearby and realize that they're being followed by chance acquaintances that suspiciously fit the description of the killers.

Yeah, the big trail?

But we're... But we're

not going that far. So...

So, how far do you go?

Uh... Just up

the road a bit.

So, if you guys, you know,

stay here for five more minutes,

I'm sure someone will

come along that can...

We was waiting for, like,

an hour before you stopped.

Maybe more.

Shit, I thought

this was Hawaii.


Come on.

Hey, you guys married?

Yeah, yeah,

we just got married.

Hold this. Some of these

pictures totally suck.

It's one of those

cameras you chuck.

- This one, this is a good one.

- Hey, Cleo, what are you doing?

These people want to

see less of us, not more.

Here it is.

That's us doing

the deed in Oahu.


We just woke up one morning

and decided to get married.

Pretty, isn't it?

Yeah, it's lovely.


Wait. Is this in

a grocery store?

Paula's Market. They do

it up real nice for you.

Yeah, yeah, yeah.

There's an onion.

Yeah, produce manager

took that picture.

I know it sounds

kind of tacky,

but it's pretty

frigging pretty

when they add all the little

radishes in there and stuff.

Right, that's

what those are.

Hey, baby, look, it's Kale and

Cleo getting married in Oahu.


Suitable for framing.

You know what?

We'll just drive you there.

Ten miles, I mean, listen...

We could have been there by now.

Maybe next time, huh?

Kale, don't be that way.

Baby, come on.

Come on, guys.

We don't have to make

this a bigger deal...

Cleo, get the f*ck

out of this man's ride!

Well, I think we

handled that really well.

Up there!

Here we go.

Kalalau Trail.

- That's good.

- Bye, Mom!

Well, I was just

pointing and shooting.

These new things have

too many buttons for me.

Yeah, that's what you get

for buying top of the line.

I might have to break down and
