While trying to fix his Mustang on the road, Jimmy McGee gets a lift in the Cadillac of a sweet lady, Missy Lofton. Missy invites Jimmy to stay at her house in Lost Junction, a very small town in Mississippi with a population of 652 locals, while his car is being repaired by the mechanic Shorty. Missy asks Jimmy to help her to take her savings in the bank, and later they travel together to New Orleans to meet Missy's boyfriend Porter. While on the road, Missy discloses to Jimmy that the body of her husband Doc is in the trunk, but Jimmy is in love with Missy and stays with her. Jimmy returns to his hometown, but his best friend Matt convinces him to return to New Orleans for Missy. Later the truth about the death of Doc is disclosed.

Appropriately Titled
23 August 2006 | by boyinflaresSee all my reviews

The thing with Neve Campbell is, while most actors and actresses who play one role on a television series for a lengthy amount of time often get well remembered for that role and do not always find success elsewhere (such as some of the "Star Trek" casts), Campbell on the other hand is probably always going to be known not for her role in "Party of Five", but for playing Sidney Prescott in the meta-horror "Scream" Trilogy. Which, for Campbell, is not necessarily a bad thing, as not only was the entire "Scream" Trilogy extremely well done, Sidney Prescott is a horror heroine unlike almost any other.

However, despite having such a honor to her name and career, Neve manages to get a variety of interesting roles, such as the one of Missy Lofton in "Lost Junction", an unusual film that for quite some time you may wonder what the point of it is. The film revolves around the meeting of Campbell's Missy and hottie Billy Burke's Jimmy McGee. The chemistry between Campbell and Burke is terrific and their characters are well-defined in terms of the context.

What goes on between Missy and Jimmy in the small town of Lost Junction is interesting to a point, but becomes long and drawn out. The flashbacks are irritating and the story seems to go nowhere for quite some time. The supporting characters are rather uninteresting, except for Jake Busey, who for the first time surprised me in his role as a paraplegic. Despite Burke's charm and Campbell's skill, "Lost Junction" doesn't really add up to much, and therefore, is aptly titled.
