You won't have seen a film quite like this before

Wow! I'm just a sucker for stuff like this. A real trippy trip and a real surprise. I was expecting crap camera-work, crap acting and silly story comprising a decent little, grind house piece of sleaze. But no, someone had genuine aspirations here and if it doesn't completely come off, it is certainly a super, one off of a movie that manages to encapsulate a brief moment in western youth culture. But leaving aside any seriousness this is such a great movie to watch with such super widescreen cinematography. Two girls and a guy and a converted bus are cavorting their way to deliver the said auto when they end up lost in the Everglades and just decide to enjoy themselves. Bright, cheery, sexy, yes maybe a little pretentious but it has such a glow about it that it would be churlish to complain. Just when I was beginning to wonder if this was going anywhere at all there is a most impressive burst of violence and it's over. You won't have seen a film quite like this before.

Wanna go for a ride?...YES PLEASE!

What can I said about "Pick-Up" that hasn't been said already? It's sad to see the negatives that were posted on here about the movie....how about you think outside the box?

Anyways, another reviewer pretty much told you what the film was about, so I won't repeat that here. What I will tell you is the film is just great. The film is obviously low budget...but not in a bad way whatsoever! They made with what they had...the acting (for that time), was very good, the directing was great, and I would just like to point out the editing...excellent! You know, back then it wasn't easy like it is now, and there's some trippy stuff you see in between shots as well. Oh, and both of the girls...absolutely beautiful.

The film, like one reviewer said, plays like a "trip"....and I absolutely gotta agree with them! Definitely a trip I would love to be on that's for sure. I WILL NOT give away the ending, but to this day it's stuck with me and I always think about it. The pacing is great, both of the girls are excellent (as characters and actresses)...the guy that owns the RV place always cracks me up lol

Seriously though, the other reviewer did a top notch job, and I can't think of anything else to say other than this:

Want to see a film that is original and unlike any other film you have seen? Tired of the films that try and pass as "grindhouse" films nowadays and want the real thing? Pick up "PICK-UP" today and go on one hell of a ride =)

But to agree with one of the other reviewers....YES!!! This, if no other movie, needs a special edition!!!!

A totally groovy one-of-a-kind 70's exploitation cinematic head trip

Flighty, easygoing Carol (yummy Jill Senter) and her intense, brooding friend Maureen (the equally tasty Gini Eastwood) hitch a ride from groovy hippie dude Chuck (affable, shaggy-haired Alan Long) in his nifty mobile home bus. The trio find themselves lost in the Florida Everglades following a fierce rainstorm and embark on a startling spiritual journey of self-discovery in which they have bizarre encounters with a rowdy bunch of whooping rednecks in a pick-up truck, a black woman wearing a flowing white robe, a smarmy politician, and a creepy clown clutching a handful of balloons. Director/editor/producer/cinematographer Bernie Hirschenson (who also shot and directed countless TV commercials in the 70's), working from a brilliantly weird script by John Winter, relates the arrestingly loosey-goosey free-form narrative at a rambling, yet steady pace and does an expert job of creating a marvelously trippy and surreal hallucinatory vibe. Moreover, Hirschenson certainly doesn't skimp on either the steamy nudity or hot soft-core sex scenes. The attractive brunette female leads deliver appealingly natural performances and look absolutely spectacular in their birthday suits. Hirschenson's bright, dewy, sunny cinematography, the spooky flashbacks into the characters' troubled pasts (Maureen does the dirty deed with a lecherous pervert priest!), lots of heavy mystical astrological mumbo jumbo, the mellow, harmonic score by Patrick Adams and Michael Rod, and the breathtaking swampland scenery further enhance the fabulously far-out strangeness of this gloriously idiosyncratic one-of-a-kind 70's exploitation movie head trip.
