My Own Private Idaho (1991)
Keanu Reeves and River Phoenix are prostitutes. There's some Henry IV business going on, which probably means that Keanu's a wayward rich kid—I think I can see him wearing a suit holding a tumbler of something and ignoring his old friends—and I remember that Julian Schnabel does a Falstaff-lying-about-getting-robbed bit. (I'm sure it's not Julian Schnabel, but I can't stop picturing Julian Schnabel in his goddamned bathrobe.) I think River is narcoleptic and at one point wakes up in a really fancy house. They probably do lots of drugs and everything is homoerotic.
