Audience Reviews for Johns

This movie is slow moving, and pretty bleak, but I did stay interested throughout and thought the acting was pretty good. I can't imagine I'll remember much about this years from now, nor will I be likely to watch it again, but it's a decent way to pass an hour and a half, which is more than can be said for some of the other movies I've watched lately.

David Arquette and Lukas Haas co-star in this indie flick, about an LA street hustler, who enlists the aid of a smitten comrade to help him replenish his stolen cash.

pretty good little flick.
