An academic obsessed with "roadside attractions" and his tv-star daughter finally discover the world's largest ice cream cone, the centerpiece for an old gold-rush town struggling to stay on the map. They end up staying longer than expected because of an accident that spilled an unknown cola ingredient all over the highway. They spend the next few days with the various residents of the town which include a teenage girl who loves to blow things up and a boy trying to keep alive his fathers dream of building a beachside resort in the middle of the desert.

I just finished seeing Desert Blue for the first time and my first impressions for this movie are good. I liked this movie for it's simplicity and well written monologues which entangle you in it's story line enough to take you through the entire movie. It's young cast is good enough to portray somewhat lost teenagers in what would be best described as "small town U.S.A." All except for the sometimes over played, but not this time, "kid star/rich girl" portrayed by Kate Hudson. I did though have a problem with the way the movie develops as it seems to leave as hanging awaiting for a "ad they lived happily ever after" tag Line but then again I guess that was implied in the movie itself. I'd definitely recommend it. I just finished watching it and I can't wait to see it again.
