3000 Miles to Graceland (2001) (part 2 of 8)

Soon after, a car pulls up, and at this point, the editor of the film pulls the first of many frustrating, abrupt scene changes by going to Michael and Cybil in bed just when one would expect to at least get a brief look at who’s in the car. If the filmmakers were going for mystery, they blew it, because anybody who’d actually buy a ticket to this thing already knew it was Kevin Costner in the car.

Regardless, Michael charmingly asks if he owes Cybil money for having sex with him, adding that he means no offense. I don’t think there’s a woman on the planet who wouldn’t take offense to that, but remarkably enough, Cybil proves to be just such a woman.

She replies that a man doesn’t offer money if it’s been nice, something I kinda doubt in certain situations. Try it some time in your local red light district. I guarantee that if the hooker doesn’t kick your teeth in, her pimp will.
