Storyline

Al McCord is hanging out at his favourite restaurant when he meets an attractive young woman (Ellie) who is looking for a ride from the city out into the Mojave Desert, where her mother lives. Little does he know that while Ellie is falling in love with him, he is falling for her mother (Julie), despite the nearby presence of Julie's boyfriend who seems likely to go berzerk at any moment. Even more strange, hilarious events follow and it's up to Al to find some explanation. His life may never again be the same. Written by Neil Wick <neil@wick.net>

Quotes

Al: [first lines - narration] Ever get so bored with your life, you're afraid your gonna do something stupid? And then you get afraid you're so far gone you can't even think up something stupid to do any more? Well last year when my wife and I split up, I decided to leave New York, thought I'd go to Seattle. Then I remembered, Seattle has even more serial killers than Long Island. Add that to the big coffee house scene, and you got a town filled with psychopaths - who are always awake.
Al: Six months in...

A sexy, sassy girl named Angelina.
17 March 2007 | by (Noctropolis) – See all my reviews

I caught "Mojave Moon" several times on cable but I didn't care about it. I even came to IMDb back in the late 90's and nobody commented about it. It was somehow a rare, obscure independent movie that gained notoriety when Jolie received her first (and only) Oscar. I caught it on a so called art channel.

To be honest, it wasn't until Angelina Jolie made her on-screen appearance with the shortest mini skirt I've ever seen on movies! That girl was stunning.

Then I got hooked in by the plot although it is very strange.

The movie has the typical situations involving a trouble girl that gets everyone in problems and ends up making everybody fool.

To be honest, if it wasn't for Jolie's sexyiness this movie would be still hidden.
