Robert, an inanimate tire that was abandoned in the desert, suddenly and inexplicably comes to life. As Robert roams the landscape, he discovers that he possesses terrifying telepathic powers that give him the ability to destroy anything without having to move. Content to prey on small desert creatures and discarded objects, his attention soon turns to humans, especially a beautiful and mysterious woman who crosses his path. Robert becomes a chaotic force to be reckoned with.

Well, that was different! Still trying to work out the raison d'etre for this movie, but as they said at the start, sometimes things happen with no reason.

I ran across this on TV and stopped to watch. I understand the very low ratings on this movie, however, if you take it with a bit of humor it can be kind of funny even though it is not supposed to be funny. Make like you are on Mystery Science Theater and poke fun at it...

The little speech by the cop at the beginning warned viewers that many movie moments and real life events were pointless or "No Reason," see quote, but failed to disclose reasons to insert the pseudo sci-fi supernatural rubber tires in the plot -- alright, no reason. But unlike the movies cited by the sheriff, this one has little to offer the audience in comparison.

Pointless movie...no story, no plot, no nothing....a total waste of time

One of the more bizarre movies I've seen in 71 times around the sun. It's funny if you have a sense of humor capable of thinking so, and it's completely unlike anything anyone is likely to do again. I've talked to people who hated it and others who watched it several times as I did. It's a great movie unless you hate it.

A very interesting film! Why is it so interesting? No reason.

Definitely a statement of pop culture and the human need for entertainment.

I would like to place the Tire and whoever contributed to the making of this piece of crap. How can anyone has the money and time to make such a horrible film, it's beyond me.

An excellent absurdist film. Highly recommended.

Lots of slow moments, no punch and above all else pointless. Even expecting a nonsensical B-movie, this was a waste of time.

Violence: A few exploding animals and lots of exploding human heads.

Frightening or Intense Scenes: Exploding heads (Corny)

VinnyV Mar 08, 2012

Sexual Content: Brief nudity. A female butt.

VinnyV Mar 08, 2012

Coarse Language: The usual. Casual, not too gratuitous. There is one brief scene where some members of the case are jokingly talking about sex acts.

Bad arguments on "No reason," premise of the film:
Lieutenant Chad: 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".

Lieutenant Chad continued: 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 fuckin' reason.

VinnyV Mar 08, 2012

Lieutenant Chad: Ladies, gentlemen, the film you are about to see today is an homage to the "no reason" - that most powerful element of style.
