This is resoundingly bad. The script and supporting cast are plainly stupid - this in isolation could be tolerated; but the stupidity extends to the inability to tell much of a story through visual perspective, so both of its legs are shot out from under it.
There's no attempt to break new ground, it's all about affirming the "men are men, women are sex objects" motif.
Reagan himself actually does the best work here -- knowing he has to play it straight, but he always manages to slip in his trademark wink at the audience.
Foster's prosthetic hand would later be recycled for Nicholas Cage in "Moonstruck".
The fistfight at the end between Reagan and Foster is well composed, using a vocabulary heavily borrowed from in later action films, notably the image of the hero who's about to have his face impaled on a prong ("Cobra", among many others).
