Missy asks Jimmy to help her to take her savings in the bank, and later they travel together to New Orleans to meet Missy's boyfriend Porter. While on the road, Missy discloses to Jimmy that the body of her husband Doc is in the trunk, but Jimmy is in love with Missy and stays with her. Jimmy returns to his hometown, but his best friend Matt convinces him to return to New Orleans for Missy. Later the truth about the death of Doc is disclosed.

One of those pleasant little surprises
26 November 2004 | by (southern California) – See all my reviews

Knowing nothing more about this movie than the blurb on the back, the wife and I decided to check it out. Many times when we've done this we've wound up with something that leaves us wondering what the folks who coughed up a couple of million to make a picture were drinking (or smoking). Not this time. Lost Junction is a little gem - thoroughly weird and truly entertaining - and a better movie by far than many of the big name/big budget movies we've seen lately. Infused throughout with an off-center take on reality, the film uses this skewed point of view to provide both poignant and humorous moments woven throughout a uniquely goofy storyline. When Jimmy hauls the bag out of the lake and the sheriff comments on its contents, we both started laughing so hard we were nearly in tears. His line will go down in our all-time movie favorites right alongside Marie Dressler's double take at Jean Harlow at the end of Dinner at Eight. But that's just us. If you're cruising the video store and having a hard time finding anything that looks interesting, by all means pick up this sleeper and enjoy!
