Most Boring movie I've seen in a long time
19 January 2005 | by blackie-5See all my reviews

I can usually find at least one thing to enjoy about a bad film, even if it's just the scenery or one actor's performance. Lost Junction, however, was one hundred percent lost on me and I'd like my $4 rental fee back. If I ever run into Neve Campbell or Peter Masterson, I'm going to ask that they repay me. I truly felt I had been watching this movie for at least an hour, and looked over at the clock to find I was only 23 minutes in! This is one of those films that's supposed to be about Southern Gothic, quirky characters in oh-so-disturbing, Southern Gothic scenarios. But it's anything but. This is one of those "Southern" tales where the Southern-ness is so pathetically imitated, the most "belle"-like thing Neve or the script can ever muster is to have Neve CONSTANTLY say to her leading man "Oh, Jimmy McGee!" (Because we all recognize a young, airheaded woman who likes to coo a man's FIRST AND LAST NAMES EACH AND EVERY TIME SHE SPEAKS TO HIM as "Southern"). The plot goes NOWHERE until the last 10 minutes(when it's way too late), bringing a throwaway character, a near-extra, into sudden plot relevance, taking away anything quirky or disturbing we've taken as truth about the 2 main characters for the last 90 minutes! An absolutely atrocious, unwatchable film. I refused to turn it off before it was over only because I'd paid that $4 (and I was determined to watch all of it, hoping it would improve), but BOY WAS IT AN ENDURANCE TEST!!!!!!!! Peter Masterson directed this, the same man responsible for the great "Trip to Bountiful." Hard to believe. Keep driving past this LOST JUNCTION!
