Storyline

In Reno, the former successful trumpet player Nate Poole has a one night stand with the wife of the powerful and ruthless mobster Happy Shannon and one of his gangsters abducts Nate to kill him in the desert. Out of the blue, Nate is saved by Indians and he walks through the desert until he reaches a side show owned by Sam Adamo. Nate asks if Sam has a telephone to make a phone call to his friend Harriet, but he sees a beautiful woman with wings called Lily Luster and he asks a drink to her. Then he invites Lily to move with him to Reno. However Sam kidnaps Nate to kill him with a snake, but Lily rescues Nate with a truck and they head to Reno. Nate plots a scheme to raise some money, offering Lily to Happy. Along their journey back to Reno, Nate falls in love with her and he decides to call off the agreement with Happy. But the criminal finds Nate's hideout and abducts Lily and keeps the angel with him. Neverthless Nate is decided to rescue Lily from Hàppy's fortress.

Megan Fox can act like that???!!!
29 May 2011 | by See all my reviews

Cut to the bottom, The cast amazed me like crap!. Never thought mickey nor Megan can ever act like this!! Trust me, This is no joke!...

You don't wanna know what other people say or think about this flick until you watch it by your own eyes. I know... Reviews and critics gives some touch but you need to understand that it differs by person to person.

I didn't expect an Oscar or Globe class story line in this movie(Nor it delivered) but plain simply, This movie took the level of actors who we thought "boring!" into a "What?!She/He can act like that?!" level! It was NOT boring from the start and contained an original script with the touch of Bill Murray which somehow worked like a charm. I got no bad things to tell about Megan Fox's acting as i mentioned above.

I never wanted to make reviews just like others do. just give it a plain look will ya! ;) "Every movie deserves a watch and that's how it suppose to be"
