With Kyle MacLachlan, Peter Coyote, Roma Maffia, Miguel Sandoval, Wade Andrew Williams.

Thematically, “Route 9” recalls the far more suspenseful, ambiguous and technically accomplished “A Simple Plan”: Story centers on two small-town deputies who come across a huge amount of money at the site of a shootout. A gifted ensemble does its best to elevate the suspenser above B-pic level, but after the first reel, pedestrian writing and sluggish helming make it clear that this crimer is destined for the small screen and video.

Driving on the desolate Route 9, Booth Parker (Kyle MacLachlan) and Earl Whitney (Wade Williams) discover $ 1 million in cash, a van full of drugs and no living witness in sight. Human nature being what it is, they are unable to resist the temptation and decide to hide the loot. A tough federal agent (Roma Maffia) arrives in town to investigate the case and reveals unexpected evidence. Scripters Brendan Broderick and Rob Kerchner bring some humor and complications to the tale in subplots that involve a corrupt coroner and a jealous sheriff (Peter Coyote) whose wife is having an affair with Booth, but the production is too simplistic and cheesy for the bigscreen.

Route 9
