Two unlikeable people begin an unhealthy relationship
12 October 2000 | by merk214See all my reviews

Two likeable (in my opinion) actors, Barbara Hershey and Naveen Andrews, play two very unsympathetic characters. Hershey is a batty broad who Andrews, a taxi driver, picks up in Manhattan one night. She wants to hire him to take her to the desert. Thus begins one of the worst road movies I've seen in years. Why these two people would even talk after spending 48 hours together, let alone become romantically involved is beyond me. Their first lovemaking is one of the most ridiculous scenes of it's type. The film's only redeeming value comes from the performance of John Doe, as a friendly, helpful local in the town where the two leads ultimately wind up.
