Storyline

A washed up Vegas lounge singer, Jack Satin (Hamilton von Watts), has no money, no job, and delusional aspirations of fame. When Jack is forced to leave Vegas, he packs up his old Cadillac and hits the road for Atlantic City. But his car dies in the desert and Jack is left stranded in the small town of Lost Springs. There, Jack meets jazz legend turned mechanic, Doc Bishop (Robert Guillaume), who helps him with his car trouble. Although Jack is far from the stage, he begins to find himself feeling at home in the small town. When he meets dreamy eyed bartender, Lauren Wells (Melissa Joan Hart), Jack starts to see there is more to life than chasing fame and fortune. Doc encourages Jack to explore his true love of music, while Lauren provides the audience he has always wanted. But as Jack realizes this town has more to offer him than the bright lights of the big city, his Vegas past catches up with him -- what unfolds is comedy at the crossroads of life.

An odd fish of a film and not as smooth as satin, either; the perpetually curious might like it
17 January 2012 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Jack Satin (Hamilton von Watts) is an aging Vegas lounge singer with little talent. Finally, he is given the heave-ho so he decides to take his talents to Atlantic City. However, his car breaks down in the Arizona desert and the nearest town is a little hole in the wall. Being low on money, Jack has to remain in the village until more prosperous times. Fortunately, there is a darling waitress at the restaurant and bar, Lauren (Melissa Joan Hart) and they give each other "the eyes". But, a fellow bartender thinks HE owns Lauren, even though she broke up with him long ago. This barkeep beats Jack up more than once. Jack's only new friend is Doc (Robert Guillaume) who tries to give the singer some needed life counsel. Will Mr. Satin decide its too much trouble to court Lauren and complete his journey to New Jersey? This is one odd fish of a film and not very smooth, either. The script is just different, as quirky as the fictional desert town where the movie is located. The cast is nice, with Hart and Watts giving nice performances. What a pleasure to see Guillaume, he's always welcome! Naturally, the setting is unusual, too, while the direction is also this side of normal, being haphazard and variable. If you are the curious type who loves offbeat cinema, you might seek this one out. But, if you like more conventional offerings, you should probably pass it over.
