3000 Miles to Graceland (2001) (part 6 of 8)

After a pointless time-lapse shot of the clouds and setting sun, we shift to nighttime as Cybil stops at a pay phone. Gee, she must really be in bad shape if she has to use a pay phone to talk to the voices. Okay, okay, she’s actually calling an antique refurbishing company called Peterson’s. If that was on the front of the card she was looking at, I missed it. Just file it away with the rest of the lazy shot selections in this pile of manure.

We cut to the store and meet Jay Peterson (played by—ugh—Jon Lovitz) and his secretary. If anybody can tell me why Jon Lovitz just had to be cast in this film, I’ll be your best friend for life. Anyway, Cybil tells him that “cleanliness is next to Godliness”, and Peterson sets a meeting for later in the evening.
