Storyline

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 <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Maybe the kindest (strangely awkward) film to watch this year
23 September 2009 | by zouiiSee all my reviews

But I liked it. I really did. Maybe it was the fact that human communication is sometimes awkward between strangers. And sometimes, there's something that works in that awkwardness.

There's nothing special about this film, except that it might grow on you in ways unexpected. The people seem out of place in their own lives, maybe even in their roles.. but if it all worked out smoothly and everything would be a perfect match - this whole film would lose its point entirely. And it would be like any other romantic comedy you've seen.

Somehow it's very real even if some events are far fetched and the sudden comedy moments here and there seem like crazy slip ups, as if the people making this film had suddenly realized "Hey, weren't we supposed to make a comedy? So let's add some, right now!"

But above all, it's kind and heartwarming, a good and unique small film to stumble upon. Without Aniston and Zahn this film would have never had its warmth.
