"Scenic Route" begins with the promise of bone-crunching violence. Before a single image appears, we hear thuds, moans, fists against flesh. Two men finally emerge, their faces smeared with blood. First-time feature directors Kevin and Michael Goetz then show how two lifelong friends, preppy Mitchell (Josh Duhamel) and schlubby Carter (Dan Fogler), became stranded by the loneliest road in the American Southwest and broke each other's noses. Tempers initially flare when Carter, an unemployed writer, tries to convince his pal that his finance job and suburban house have led him astray.
