Jane is a night club singer, out of work. Robin is a quirky real estate agent looking for a ride-share to accompany her to California. Her advertisement is answered by Jane, who at first was uncertain about her. A stop in Pittsburgh picks up a third, Holly, escaping a violent and drug-dealing partner. Girls on the road, reaching understanding, respect, and care for each other. But this trio is different - Jane a lesbian, Robin suffering with AIDS, Holly running from her past, seeking one-night stands and a good man.Written by

Their New York to Los Angeles trip is interrupted by an emergency in Tucson, Arizona. Going through Tucson is not mentioned in the movie and adds over 200 miles to a normal NY-LA route. See more »
[Elaine is crying at Robin's bedside, the nurse thinks her sniffles are relative to a cold, and tells her she could aggravate her daughter's condition]
It's not a goddamn cold! Don't be such a hoo-hoo.
And what's a hoo-hoo?
It's a cunt, dear.
Now why don't you leave us alone?

Fine, this movie has its moments, but it seems to be tugging the heartstrings just that little bit too much. Our three heroines go out into the wild blue yonder just like Thelma and Louise, even leaving a body behind, but things take a sentimental turn and at times descends into mush. I found myself losing interest around the time Jane left the house, and found the ending twee in the extreme. On the plus side, though, good choice of songs for the soundtrack.
