Have Love, Will Travel

Good people get in trouble in "Have Love, Will Travel," a hackneyed drama about a rookie call girl and escort who learn almost too late how dangerous their line of work can be. Writer-helmer Dan Peterson has drawn from his own time as an escort, but is unable to maximize his subject's huge capacity for intense drama.

Good people get in trouble in “Have Love, Will Travel,” a hackneyed drama about a rookie call girl and escort who learn almost too late how dangerous their line of work can be. Writer-helmer Dan Peterson has drawn from his own time as an escort (the designated driver of call girls delivered to front doors of perfect strangers’ homes), but is unable to maximize his subject’s huge capacity for intense drama. Pic contains just enough pro elements to attract cablers looking to stock their latenight skeds.

Opening 10-minute sequence involving a call gal and her hick customer hints at a considerably more compelling experience than what happens next with newbies Nathan (Chandler Rylko) and Whitney (Tae Davies), both barely getting by in Los Angeles. Nathan is drawn into the biz by no-nonsense escort Sonny (Jarrod Crawford) and, inevitably, accompanies Whitney as she goes to meet her residents. While the details of an inherently dangerous, high-stress trade are clearly the result of an insider’s know-how, they’re applied to a trite dramatic framework that rescues the new kids from the worst of fates.
