The movie plot is straightforward and involves Christian Slater, who is starred as John Smith, who is often down on his luck. After getting dumped by his girlfriend, Smith heads to an Indian Reservation casino, where a hooker steals his wallet. He then enters an Elvis Impersonation contest, where he loses and becomes bankrupt in the blink of an eye. He is then accused of stealing the priceless ancient Native American mask, which was safeguarded in the safe-room by the chief. The security decides that John hasn’t taken the mask but decides to kill him instead.

Meanwhile, we all get introduced to Helena Mattsson, who is introduced as “the Blonde”. Later in the movie, we have seen that she kills Gay Elvis and leaves Smith’s credit card on his corpse. After regaining consciousness, John finds Elvi’s address and goes to his house, which is when we’re introduced to Jeff Fahey as the cowboy, the two sheriffs – Dane Cook and Sam Trammell, Powers Boothe as “the rancher”. The plot then shifts to 1980s, where he explains that he was hired by Elvis to steal the mask because they owned it.

There is a lot of shooting and guns in the scene, at the end of which the blond kills the Little Man Elvis.

After a lot of chasing, planning and plotting, we find out that the entire Elvis family was killed by John Smith’s parents. The Indian servant was classified dead while he was still alive. The servant has initially been a part of the Hopi tribe, and the mask initially belonged to her. But the end of the movie, we realize that the Indian servant was also a part of the scam and the mask wasn’t destroyed. John returns the mask to the servant. But, one plot is that the original name of John Smith isn’t even his words.


Viewer’s Reviews

The entire movie does justice to the title. Like those mentioned earlier, the plot is based on girls, lots of shooting and guns as well as gambling. According to the reviews from the critics and movie buffs, the movie is solely based on guns, more than the girls and many considered the movie to be a complete k=time-killer. The movie has no motivation to even one of the three things mentioned in the title. But that said, for people who are interested in nothing but a motive to kill time, then it is the best and does justice to its title. For someone who loves action, thriller and a lot of blood, then it is the best fit for them.
