First we see the youths struggle, then we see them get involved with a big plan, then their subsequent escape, then... well, the movie after that point has even less of a clue what to do. To top it off, there's no real ending. The "joy" comes from the producers who took ticket-buyers on a "ride" - though I doubt this sold many tickets.

Joy Ride (known as Road Kill in the United Kingdom) is a 2001 American horror thriller film directed by John Dahl and written by J. J. Abrams and Clay Tarver.

Joy Ride (2001) cast and crew credits, including actors, actresses, directors, writers and more.
In Joy Ride, the two very attractive male leads (Paul Walker and Steve Zahn) play brothers who are terrorized on the road by a maniacal psychopath--with the clever CB handle of "Rusty Nail". And why are they terrorized? Because Zahn talks the more subdued Walker into playing a trick on Rusty Nail by impersonating a woman over the CB.
