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
Mike (Steve Zahn) works at his parents' (Margo Martindale, Fred Ward) roadside motel. Sue (Jennifer Aniston) sells art for office buildings. She's passing through for the night. He's a lonely loser who falls for the cold lonely woman. He tries his best to connect. She's also strange in her own way. Just maybe they're perfect for each other.
It's a very predictable low budget indie. Nobody is really stretching their acting skills. Steve Zahn does this lovable loser character often while Aniston plays the same cold superior woman with a heart if only she's willing to open up. Writer/director Stephen Belber has created some quirky moments, but none of them are truly gut busters. It does take a wild left turn later on with Woody Harrelson. It's not any funnier although James Hiroyuki Liao is a fun sidekick.
