Storyline

Lolita is a streetwalker on Hollywood Boulevard. After Lolita and her streetwalker friend, Eva, harass a sleazy pick-up guy, Lolita hits the streets where she meets and hustles a john named Angel. The next morning, Angel picks up his girlfriend, Julie, for sex in a car wash. Julie's a waitress at a local diner and is humiliated by Richard, a misogynist customer who assaults her in the men's room. 'Rich' is a lawyer who's having an affair with his boss's wife, Kathy, whose husband Bobby keeps her informed of his own affairs, even as he and Kathy have an afternoon of passion. Elsewhere, Peter Blaine, is a struggling actor who wants to keep it secret that his lover is a man, comes home to Patrick, who's angry and hurt. They make up, but tragedy follows; in his grief, Peter picks up Lolita. The following morning, Peter finds himself attracted to her. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Excessive pretentiousness leads to ultimate boredome. (spoilers)
26 March 2005 | by (Orlando, Florida) – See all my reviews

Matt Adler fans might be interested in this one, though he only appears as a very minor supporting character for three or four minutes total. But what the heck? It's one of the last films he's actually appeared in (because he's doing mostly adr loop credits these days).

In spite of that, however, this is one utterly dull movie. You have probably seen a zillion movies just like this one, a few separate stories which share interrelated characters (in one way or another). But, they're basically very short scenes of insignificant events between the characters (all connected through sex) in which they take the time to pontificate (both through action and dialog) to the point where your wondering if you're the only one who has no idea what they're saying or if you're the only one who doesn't care. While there were a few interesting things that occur in the movie (most all of them involving any of the scenes with Hillary Swanks character--since she was probably the most interesting, if not the most likable character in the whole mess), this is just about an hour and half of non-sequential nothing. It may work in some films (Tarrantino, borrowing from the anarchistic stylings of 70s french and Italian filmmakers was able to pull it off, among others), but this the way 'Quiet Days in Hollywood' worked out, it is one of the many that makes no sense, and rarely strives to do little more than waste time.
