Storyline

US merchant sailor Alex Walker (Kevin Anderson) is stranded in Mexico, penniless and wanted by the police. He meets and joins up with an unlikely couple - ageing but likeable shit Phillip Mills (John Lithgow) and young sexy, frustated wife Missy (Rosanna Arquette). The three develop a curiously inter-dependent relationship. Meanwhile, Police Captain Diaz and Detective Ortega are closing in and the plot circle is closed at Tapachula rail station amidst a stack of mistakes and wrong decisions.

Rosanna Arquette unleashed!
22 March 2005 | by (north dakota) – See all my reviews

This is Rosanna Arquette's film, as the box art proudly displays. That is the reason I purchased it, and was not let down. The lead actor, Kevin Anderson, was a dude I had never seen before, but he performed adequately.

John Lithgow helps to save this film from being just another decent T&A flick, but when the T&A is provided by the perfectly proportioned Rosanna Arquette, there isn't much need for assistance.

Kevin Anderson is on the run from being framed for a murder, and tags along with fellow American tourists Arquette and Lithgow, deep in Mexico. As one can expect, Kevin finds that taking his eyes off Rosanna is not easily done. And Rosanna wouldn't mind sampling stud Kevin rather than her underhanded husband Lithgow.

The motel scene where Rosanna spends about five minutes topless, receiving a piggy-back ride from Lithgow made the film for me. Rosanna is all kinds of sexy!!
