Storyline

Our heroine isn't having a good time. Having lost her L.A. job and walked out on her unfaithful boyfriend, she finds herself stuck in nowhere Macon County when her car and possessions are stolen by the girl hitch-hiker she picks up on her way to New York. Though innocent, she is thrown in jail for holding up a local store, then kills the sheriff's son when he rapes her. Now she's on the run with a convicted felon, but she still can't quite see that this really isn't her lucky week. Written by Jeremy Perkins <jwp@aber.ac.uk>

8 November 2006 | by (connecticut) – See all my reviews

This film was so bad that the content of the movie is not even reviewable. The performances by Ally Sheedy and David Carradine represent their darkest cinematic hour. In their defense, if that's possible, the budget for this film had to have provided for only one take for every scene. I simply can't think of any other reason how a film could be so poorly put together. At one point I really thought that Sheedy and Carradine were intentionally "bad acting", and that the film was intended to be a "quasi" spoof. It wasn't. But here's the interesting thing about this movie. The movie was so bad that it was, in an odd way, fascinating to watch. I'm sure Ally Sheedy blushes anytime she's within earshot of a mention of this film. It's always interesting to see someone with talent do something remarkable, whether good or bad.
