"I caught 'Roads to Riches' on late night HBO. It is a fine film, with even better acting by Rose McGowan as a striper, Robert Forrester as a washed up child actor who is trying to win cash on game shows and scam some soda company, and Kip Pardue, a dashing looking young actor who plays a Texan that has just made his way to L.A. to become an actor but ends up elsewhere.
Henry, Kip's character, meets Jack(Forrester) at a game show. They become buddies and Jack shows Henry around and to Moira(McGowan), who was taken under Jack's wing and works as a striper.
"Roads" is a dramatic movie with some twists to our three loners lives. It is part love story, part character study, and at times not sure what it wants to be.
It was the heart of its' stars that made it shine bright enough to be worthy of this review.
If you are fans of any of these stars, it's worth a look."

"When I watched this movie I was pleasantly surprised. The story started out to be what I thought was going to be another "Quiz Show", but it turned out a lot different. It's a great movie for those who enjoy a love story with a twist. It's plot was ironic in places, and the ending was a bit of a surprise. I actually found it to be quite interesting to see how people so beat up, find hope in each other and end up being happy in the end."
