He’s a prostitute on Santa Monica Blvd in L.A., and he wants to spend that night and the next day at the posh Park Plaza Hotel. He’s ripped off a local drug dealer to pay the bill, but as he’s sleeping that morning, someone steals his shoes right off his feet, with the money in them. Meanwhile, Donner, a lad new to the streets, wants John to leave the city with him for Camelot, a theme park in Branson, MO, where they’ll work as lifeguards. John spends the day trying to hustle the money for the hotel, avoid Jimmy the Warlock, keep his girl friend placated, and figure out how to deal with Donner’s friendship.

So, unfortunately, this film does draw comparisons to both “Midnight Cowboy” and “My Own private Idaho” because of the subject matter, male prostitution.
The main problem with these comparisons though is that it shows up what an average film “Johns” is. Not as flashily entertaining or as funny as “Midnight Cowboy” or as bleakly beautiful as “Idaho” it probably is a victim of its own lack of ambition. If you want a more cutting film about hustlers look to some of Paul Morrissey’s far more “out-there” Warhol films (try “Trash”) “Johns” isn’t a bad film-though Arquette just doesn’t convince and some of the writing seems painfully contrived. Indeed there are more comparisons with Idaho; Arquette is as weak as Keanu Reeves is in the latter and the scripts of both have contrivances which simply don’t work. But, Idaho is a strangely dreamy film that frequently soars off into moments of aching beauty whilst “Johns” trots arounds the streets of LA without offering much insight or interest in these young mens lives. Its an OK film and one which may make a few people think about society’s hypocrisies but it doesn’t really cut it as a great film
