Flexing its... rubber... and ready to roll, it soon discovers its telekinetic ability to make small animals and people's heads explode. Lt. Chad hopes to end this movie by fatally poisoning every last spectators, but failing that, the show must go on, and the tire goes on a three-day rampage. With few left alive, a lure is constructed to draw the tire from its motel room, where hopes are to end it and this movie once and for all.

In the Steven Spielberg movie "E.T.",

why's the alien brown?

No reason.

In "Love Story",

why did the two characters

fall madly in love with each other?

No reason.

In Oliver Stone's "JFK",

Why's the President suddenly

assassinated by some stranger?

No reason.

In the excellent "Chainsaw Massacre"

by Tobe Hooper,

why don't we ever see the characters

go to the bathroom...

or wash their hands,

like people doing in real life?

Absolutely no reason.

Worse, in "The Pianist" by Polanski,

how come this guy has to hide

and live like a bomb...

when he plays the piano so well?

Once again the answer is "no reason".

I could go on for hours

with more examples.

The list is endless.

You probably never gave it a thought.

But all great films,

without exception,

contain an important element--

a "no reason".

And you know why?

Because life itself...

is filled with "no reason".

Why can't we see the air all around us?

No reason.

Why're we always thinking?

No reason.

Why do some people love sausages

and other people hate sausages?

No f*ckin' reason.

Come on, don't waste your time

explaining that garbage. Let's go!

Just one minute. Let me finish.

Ladies, gentlemen,

the film you're about to see today

is an homage to the "no reason"--

that most powerful element...of style.

Why did they destroy all those chairs.

- Too sad on those.

- Yeah, it's really a pity.

Quiet, please.

Everybody turn around.

Good. Enjoy.

Excuse me, is it going to be in color

or black and white?

It's already boring.

Don't be so negative.

It's just the beginning.

It's going to pick up. Just be patient.

I hope that's not an old silent film.

I can't hear thing.

Yes, you can hear the wind a little.

If You listen.

Somebody see something?

I see a dump, there, straight ahead.

RUBBER:

Amazing. He just blew up a bottle

without even touching it.

Really? Let me see.

That's odd.

It looks like he has telepathic power.

You mean Psychokinetic?

I don't care about the right word.

Has it just blown up

the bottle with its mind?

It is most likely. Yes.

That's awesome. I'm starting to like it.

I think the kid is right.

Psychokinetic powers.

Excuse me, but do you have to

comment everything aloud?

We are not commenting,

we are only trying to understand.

- What do you think of it?

- Nothing.

You know you're not allowed to film

the film. That is forbidden by law.

It is?

Yeah, they'll put you in jail for that.

Jail?

That's kidding me?

Yes, she's right, it is piracy.

I'll be careful if I were you.

My wife could not come.

I just wanna show her.

This's piracy anyway.

Thanks for that. I won't in the future.

Come on!

Starting again!

Wake up!

Let's go!

Jesus, I almost slept awake.

F*ckin' insects!

I was really cold myself.

Quiet!

Wake up!

Excuse me. Would it be possible

to have some coffee and toast?

Dad, I'm hungry.

Dad?

Where is he?

Straight ahead.

He just woke up.

Oh, thanks.

Anyone got any food?

Oh my god!

Not bad at all.

Well, let me see.

It is the first time in my life

I identify with a tire.

Stop that. Give me that!

Her ass is not that great,

but I understand.

You're hard to pleased.

It is fine with me.

Her ass isn't that great

but she has quite a wag on it.

You think the tire is gonna get laid?

I would like to see it!

What position do you think?

I think she'll start with

a good blowjob.

Oh yeah...

Jesus, you think you're

gonna shut up some time

and let's watch in

peace? I can't stand it.

Come on. Can't you take a little joke?

Yes, there is plenty of space. Go

somewhere else if we're bothering you.
