Destiny Turns on the Radio is a 1995 American comedy film directed by Jack Baran and starring Dylan McDermott, Nancy Travis, and Quentin Tarantino. The movie tells the story of a petty thief named Julian Goddard (McDermott), who finds himself on the run from both the police and the mob. After stealing a bag of money from a Las Vegas casino, Julian hitches a ride into the desert with a mysterious woman named Lucille (Travis) and her romantic interest, Johnny Destiny (Tarantino).

The three of them stop at a remote truck stop, where they meet a colorful cast of characters, including a singing waitress named Edie (James Belushi) and a philosophical bartender named Mr. Smith (Bobcat Goldthwait). Julian is immediately smitten with Edie, while Lucille and Johnny seem to have some sort of unknown prior history together. Soon, all hell breaks loose as the police and the mob close in on Julian, and he must rely on his newfound friends to help him escape.

Dylan McDermott gives a standout performance as Julian, the flawed but lovable protagonist who just can't seem to stay out of trouble.

Meanwhile, Nancy Travis brings a quiet strength to her character, Lucille, who is both mysterious and alluring. Quentin Tarantino, in one of his rare acting roles, plays the charming and enigmatic Johnny Destiny, who seems to hold all the answers to Julian's problems.

The music plays a big role in the film, with several musical numbers interspersed throughout the movie. The songs, ranging from bluesy ballads to upbeat rock and roll tunes, help to set the tone for the various scenes and add to the overall atmosphere of the film.
