"Destination Anywhere" is a contemporary film noir set on the streets of a gritty, yet colorful Manhattan neighborhood. Jon Bon Jovi stars as JON, a man on the run from his home, his gambling debts, and his marriage. He is summoned back to New York to deal with his emotionally estranged wife, JANIE, and emergency room nurse who has never fully recovered from the hit-and-run death of their only child several years ago. Jon returns to chaos, Janie is out of control and his debts have caused his life to be in danger. He struggles to cope with the troubles at home, but has built walls that are too thick to penetrate and the problems only escalate between Jon and Janie. When an abandoned baby is found in a dumpster and brought to the hospital where Janie works, a series of events is set in motion that forces the couple to reassess the terms of their love, responsibility and commitment to one another.

Janie: He build a house around me. Strong beams rooted in earth. And smooth walls, rich with colour. And a canopy of sky. Windows reveal a new view. In their reflection, my mouth smiles back, its curves relaxed. And the bed, soft as a welcoming hand. I, who all my life, had made my home in rented rooms, the carpets crusted with the leavings of prior occupants, now have an address. This house he build. The streets paved with our love.

25 November 2006 | by (Lithuania) – See all my reviews

very emotional movie! a loved it. at the beginning it was a bit confusing, but i really enjoyed it all. Jon Bon Jovi was perfect in this film. and the music was perfect, sometimes it looked like a music clip. the plot is a bit depressing ... very touching ... i would watch it 10 times and i will never get tired of it. i like movies when the plot is very mysterious, when you think what happened in some parts of the movie, and this short movie is just like this. especially i recommend this short movie to all JBJ fans, he looks nice in this movie and proves that he can actually act, and his music really fits for this movie..just great... 10/10
