Storyline

Mike works at his parents' motel in Kingman, population 27,000, on old Route 66. Sue sells art for a Baltimore firm to corporations for office walls. He takes one look at her from behind as she registers at the motel and determines to connect. He's sweet, but hapless, with no ambition other than spending time with her. She's enigmatic - rarely smiling, occasionally impulsive, committed to helping homeless people, feeling the clock tick after a breakup with a boyfriend who could have provided security. Is there any way he stands a chance with her? What can he offer? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

The left-hand side of the screen shows there are 4 unread emails but there are actually 8 unread emails.

Transcending To The Next Level
24 May 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Steve Zahn plays Mike, a night manager at the motel his parents run. Mike is a typical case of arrested development. He has no friends,no girlfriend & potentially no future. All of this changes when an art dealer (Jennifer Aniston)checks into the motel on a business trip. He falls head over heels in love with her,to the point of stalking her across the country. The mere fact that she is engaged to be married to an ex-punk rocker doesn't sway Mike from his mission. This is a nicely played film about casting off the superficial and moving ahead. Woody Harrelson has some nice,but too brief screen time as the proto psycho boyfriend. First time director,Steven Belber directs from his own screenplay that mixes comedy & drama with a nice touch of quirkiness, and even manages to toss in a bit of eastern philosophy for good measure. Steve Zahn is a likable chap who just wants from life what everybody else wants. Jennifer Aniston is (as usual)Jennifer Aniston. This is a hold over film from last year that is just now getting some distribution (mainly to art houses). You could do a lot worse than this. Rated 'R' by the MPAA for some salty language & adult situations.
