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