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.

Guys! Guys! We're doing

a video for Cliff and Cydney.

What do you want to say?

First the big studio sale.

Now the big wedding.

MVP year for

our boy, Clifford.

I f***ing hate you, Anderson.

Hey, and when

you're all famous,

don't forget about your

crew from film school.

Boys in the Wood Hood!

You dance with who brung you,

Cliffie. You dance with who brung you.

I mean, you know we wouldn't be

here tonight if it wasn't for me.

I mean, I brought her to

that Black Eyed Peas concert.

I introduced them. I mean,

I basically hooked them up.



two and a half,


And when he was

ready to propose,

finally, I was the one that he

practiced on to get it right.

So, you gonna

f*** him tonight, Rita?

I already did.

Can you... Can you

give me that please?


My little brother

getting married before me.

Yeah, I wonder why. Come on.

Your armpit smells like ass, okay?

Will you let the f*** off?

I came all the way from Michigan

to do this one more time.

How does that feel?

Some of our friends did

the Kalalau Trail last year

and came back with the

most amazing pictures.

So they're going

to Maui, right?

Kauai, the last island. Right...

Right there, number five.

One, two, three, four,

five, right there.

It's called

a dollar dance.

In 1967 it was

a dollar dance.

Please, get a 50.

Get out of there.

I want you guys to know how

much I love you. I adore you.

And I hope you have the

best time on your honeymoon.

And make it something to

remember. Love you, guys.

I think they just wanted to

start off their lives together

with some kind of adventure.

The red dot.

There's the red dot.

The thing.

You comfortable?

Got the camera.

This should...

Hey, can I ask you a

question, Mr. Cliff Anderson...


...of Venice Beach,


Yes, Mrs. Cydney Anderson,

formerly Miss

Cydney Karswell,

of Pacific Palisades,


How did you

get this scar?

Oh, my God, I can't believe

I didn't notice it before.

That's a long story

and it involves

Homeland Security.

It's not funny. And me

being unexpectedly pressed

into service as

a deputy air marshal.

And I don't really

want to talk about it.

Try again! A little

less grandiose, thank you.

My brother hit me with his

skateboard when I was nine.


which brother is this?

That would be Tommy,

the dick, from Michigan.


Wait, I thought he said

Maryland at the wedding.

Excuse me,

but whose brother is this?

I'm so sorry! He's

got, like, 16 brothers, okay?

All right,

Tommy from Michigan.

A new wife should

know these things.

Feet in! Feet in! Feet in!

Christ! Are you insane?

It's a rental.

Mrs. Cydney Anderson.

Mrs. Cydney... No,

Mrs. Cydney... Listen.

You know, it's like

writing checks in January.

I know

I'm going to blow it.

You got to keep practicing.

Cliff, get back

in here! God!

I've never seen so many shades of green!

Hey, hey!

Get a picture of me!

Hey, hey!

Stop it!

Look! Look!

Oh! Whoa!

Hey, hey!

Look, look! Trekkers!



Hey! Hey, I want to do that!

Kalalau, that trail right down there!

Did it myself

back in the day.

I'll show you

what it's all for.

The most gorgeous dead end

God ever made.



You know what?

Drop me off right here.

Forget the hike.

Only two ways

in and out, Cydney.

By foot or by kayak.

But that's what

makes it so special.

Well, beautiful it is,

brother. How many days you allow?

About one day in, one day at the

beach and then another day back.

Common mistake.

What, you think

I need more?

I don't know if you need more,
