Passenger Side movie scenes

On the morning of his thirty seventh birthday Michael Brown (Adam Scott) receives a telephone call from his estranged brother Tobey (Joel Bissonnette), which sends the two off on a day-long odyssey on an old BMW across a wild and weird Los Angeles in search of Tobey’s “reason for living.” Behind the wheel of a beat up old BMW, fuelled by hilarious banter and a killer soundtrack, the brothers’ search leads them through a bizarre, beautiful land filled with surprising, comical characters to a very unexpected and magical destination.
