1:58Needs more Google Maps.
3:46This is all very Phone Booth.
5:59The air freshener is significant?
7:47Is Road Aid an actual thing?
10:25I wonder what her online resources are. Definitely not Google.
11:29Litterbug! Just cos you’re in the middle of the desert, that’s no excuse.
12:06He does know that driving faster doesn’t save fuel, right?
13:30Yay for being picked up on the litterbug thing.
16:36Oooh, he’s one of the robbers! No wonder he was worried about the policeman.
19:33It looks like he has a lot of make up on.
21:31He’s definitely told his wife too much.
25:45He talks too much. Archer could have been listening.
27:28Woah. See what I said? Archer was listening.
30:50That’s a good point, he couldn’t tell him where he is even if he wanted to.
31:48If that was my phone, it would have run out of battery by now.
35:45Do people really keep keys in their cars? Even in the middle of the desert, I still wouldn’t.
37:20How does he do that? The cop keeps getting in front and then passing him again.
40:05Interesting how the truck had everything he needed, i.e. binoculars.
45:29I don’t know whether to feel sorry for him or not.
48:50Hey, wait a minute. How did he get the truck going again?
49:37I don’t like people that write all over their maps.
51:19He’s been there before. He needs Judy again. Or Google Maps.
54:11Where do I recognise the trooper from? (IMDB says nowhere.)
57:22Those look like pretty treacherous driving conditions, even on straight roads.
59:40Does she have her internet resources at her brother’s house too?
1:01:29Does everyone have a favourite colour?
1:04:14He can’t possibly remember the directions after all that chatting. I certainly don’t.
1:08:02He should turn into Superman right about now. That would solve everything.
1:10:04That’s ever so slightly Back to the Future.
1:19:43Nice little tip at the end. Duly noted.


This film popped up on iPlayer and yes, I’ll admit it, I only watched it because it was called Lost, and wasn’t there a TV show called that as well?

I was also a bit tempted to see how well Superman fared without Lois.

This was actually a good film. It was slow paced but intriguing, and the suspense gradually built until the end. Even though it was actually quite obvious, I didn’t get the twist until it happened. Dean Cain was pretty good, considering he had to hold the screen for essentially the whole film. I was happily surprised.

Rating: 4 / 5
