Destination Anywhere, which as a matter of fact is also a full-length LP by the artist Jon Bon Jovi. Get's transfered from the concept of the album to the big screen. The idea behind this film, which works like a long music video is the fact that Jon and his wife, are in mourning over their child who was killed in an accident. As a result, both characters lives are full of confusion, despair and heartache. Jon seems like a lost soul in this film, he still hasn't gotten over the death of his child. As a result he enters a world of depression. His wife, played by Demi Moore is equally as frustrated and confused as Jon. The movie shows their pain and how they are still trying to cope with the loss. I was surprised at just how touching this film was, I was a little teary eyed when it was over. I felt for all the characters, all the characters seemed real to me. Not bad I say for a small little film like this. This film shows the world that Jon Bon Jovi is indeed a great actor, and a multi-talented entertainer. Demi Moore almost steals the show, when on screen she sucks you in with her beauty and her emotions. This is a must see for fans of both actors, especially Bon Jovi fans. I find that this film gives new meaning to Jon's solo LP, Destination Anywhere. I now appreciate it more and understand it better thanks to this film. While a little on the depressing side, Destination Anywhere still manages to be engaging and worthwhile on the strengths of it's focused stars. Also stars Kevin Bacon, Annabella Sciorria, Whoopie Goldberg.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pretty d@mn impressive, JB Dec 23 2001

This movie is about 45 minutes long, with some music videos preceeding. It was a very interesting idea to build this short film around the songs on Jon's solo album, Destination Anywhere, plus he gets the chance to act, WHICH BY THE WAY HE IS INCREDIBLE IN!! Normally the history of musicians-turned-actors is a pretty pitiful one, however Bon Jovi's performance seems like he's been a professional actor for years. The script is excellent, not a trace of phoniess anywhere, and the photography is extremely well done too. You really get a feel for the mood of they story they're telling. Its a shame this wasn't released more commercially, if it were longer I think it would be a hit.
The all-star cast doesn't hurt either - Bon Jovi, Demi Moore, Kevin Bacon, Whoopi Goldberg, and Annabella Sciorra each did a great job, and I cant wait to see more from this director as well.

This video wasn't just for his latest solo album. It was an anology of all the songs and lives that he created throughout the years of recordings. It's the story of Tommy and Gina, it's the next stage from the song "Living on a Prayer" and "Lie to Me", it's a personal note of Jon's own experiences and it's the best video clip that i have ever watched. He had the BEST crew in, Demi, and Whoopie - such a dag that women. A great big thumbs up for something that was different from all the other stuff they did. I hope that they never regret the risk of it, it turned out to be fantastic. Recomend it to any Bon Jovi fan.

4.0 out of 5 stars This is video is preety cool!! Feb. 23 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This video is good for any bon jovi fan, also because at the beggining they have an interview with jon. they also show the video for midnight in chelsea, queen of new oreleans, the movie itself is kind of weird. it tells about a woman who lost her daughter who in real life is katherine korzillius, the producer or whatever of the album. thats what the song august 7 415 is about. and all through the movie they try to fix there problems and stuff like that. watch it for yourself and see what you think of it. but at the end when your into the movie they just stop. its a pretty cool movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars not what i expected Oct. 18 2000
Format:VHS Tape
it is true... when i first brought destination anywhere home and started watching it, it wasn't exactly what i was expecting. i thought it was another video cassette with music videos on it. but what i found had a lot more depth to it. we all know jon bon jovi as a singer of a rock and roll band. what the rest of the world needs to see is how much more jon can do. in my opinion, this video introduced us to the rising star jon is today as an actor. i think it is one of the best videos jon has released. i hope you will consider buying it and watching it. i'm glad i did.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jon Bon Jovi: a true talent Sept. 9 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Instead of the same old, same old video promotion, Jon Bon Jovi did something different--a movie was written based on the songs on his solo album. It is the perfect melding of his songwriting and acting talent. The stellar cast involved--Whoopi Goldburg, Demi Moore, Kevin Bacon, Annabella Sciorra--speaks volumes about the quality of the script. This drama centered on the real life murder of child (inspiration for the song August 7, 4:15) will touch your heart. You do not have to own the album to appreciate the film.

5.0 out of 5 stars It was made me to think about something. Oct. 8 2000

The tune values the perfection as the movie by the extent which flows casually exactly as a sound track. It is basically a movie of a very dark tone though reverberations relieved because it becomes saving that last is faint are left. I think it's based on "August 7, 4:15", a true story from Paul Korzilius's(Jon's Manager) daughter's (Katherine) murder. The gorgeous co-starring formation seems to have gone out by a no guarantee though it was said the production cost 2,750,000.00 bucks.
