The notorious Gecko Brothers, two of America’s most dangerous criminals, are on the run from the Texas police and the FBI after a crime spree through the Southwest. Across the border in Mexico, the mysterious Carlos offers sanctuary to criminals on the lam, but first they must slip past the border patrol. Enter the Fuller family: Jacob, a minister who has lost his faith and his children, the vulnerable teenage Kate and her younger brother Scott, on a road trip in their new R.V. The Gecko Brothers kidnap the Fullers and high-tail it to freedom with the promise to let the family go once they hook up with their criminal connection in Mexico. The rendezvous point is the Titty Twister, the wildest bar this side of the Rio Grande. The night is full of seductive promise as the group settles back to wait for Carlos and his boys to arrive at sunrise. But unbeknownst to the brothers or their hostages, the management and staff of this particular establishment have a taste for blood--in the vampire sense.

Harry Lockhart (Robert Downey Jr.), a petty thief on the run from the cops after a botched five-finger-discount Christmas shopping spree, suddenly finds himself in a movie audition giving an expert reading. One thing leads to another and he’s in L.A., poised to be Hollywood’s next golden boy. But then another thing leads to another: to research his upcoming breakthrough role, Harry tags along with Perry van Shrike, a high-end gumshoe who operates very much in the tradition of Philip Marlowe. Except he’s gay. Soon, Harry is lurking in the bushes with "Gay Perry" (Val Kilmer) and it isn’t long before there are bodies to dispose of, thugs to contend with and a deadly, devious plot to uncover. And, fear not, there’s a dame for Harry to fall hopelessly in love with. Harmony Faith Lane is a down-on-her-luck aspiring actress with whom Harry has been smitten ever since they were kids back in Indiana. Naturally, it turns out that she’s the heart of gold at the centre of all the intrigue.
