With a minute stopover, John gets out to make a telephone call when he is approached by a prostitute, Anne, and offered 'a good time'.
Overall this is not a very good film; the writing could have been a lot better and it would have produced a much more enjoyable film. However they struggle to find a place that is quiet and that is a acceptable to Jonathon as a place to have sex.
Was this review helpful to you? As a plot it isn't that convincing and it is hard to really believe that John would change so much because of this one encounter or that he would be able to change his feelings in such a short time. It has a nice atmosphere and tone to it that works here and it was easy to just watch even if I didn't get involved at all. It is not without charm and it is easy to watch and is probably worth seeing once if the chance presents itself.
The problem is that the writing isn't as strong as it needed to be in order to support this premise and too much of the film is spend going to places and then having them go wrong as opposed to seeing John's soul being searched. The delay in getting started means that they have time to talk as they look for a spot. However, and I'm not sure why, I did enjoy this film more than it probably deserved to be enjoyed.
The basic story sees a woman and her john literally trying to find a place to 'do business' and, while they look, we see John gradually gain confidence and relax a bit simply from some aspects of her character.
Support from McGee adds familiarity but nothing more. He reluctantly agrees to do so and they set off to find a quiet place somewhere prostutute the bus station.
The cast helps this, in particular a quite nice iin performance from Bowe who does well with quite an easy character. As it is, it is a rather simple look at a shy, non-confrontational man who learns a life lesson during his 18 minutes in Albuquerque.
However, I still liked it and it is probably due to the freewheeling and quite relaxed nature of the film that I did. With a minute stopover, John gets out to make a telephone call when he is approached by a prostitute, Anne, and offered 'a good time'.
