This aimless, meandering film involves three interconnected stories. A college psychology professor’s wife (Deena Dill) leaves him for another woman, and he heads out on a road trip with a student who is also a professional escort. In another segment, Tom (Angelo Spizzirri, Pretty Persuasion) is unwell mentally and physically, and when they no longer have money for his meds, his caregiver Daphne (Lauren Holly) snaps. She kidnaps Tom’s sister from a cultlike church, and with the help of her cousin (Meat Loaf), she also hits the road.
All of them end up in the same isolated motel, and the church sends a hit woman to take care of the kidnapper and her ransom demands. Out lesbian Jill Bennett (In Her Line of Fire, ‘Dante’s Cove,’ We Have to Stop Now) looks hot in black leather as the brutal hit woman who jumps out of her convertible rather than opening the door. We’re first introduced to her as she and her strap on give it to another woman. When she reaches the motel, she ties up the professor (Angus Macfadyen) and ends up using her condom covered silencer to dispense his first real sexual pleasure.
Unfortunately, a gun toting lesbian in black leather isn’t enough to make this movie worth watching. I really didn’t care about who lives and dies in the end – just waiting for the credits to roll. (AB)
