An ex-newspaper woman who is now a suburban housewife can't resist getting involved in an investigation of the murder of a philandering dentist who had been having affairs with several of her neighbors.
This is a small film that got a limited release and is not remembered by many today despite the two name stars. Bridges plays a young man released from a mental home who sets off to find his family and fill in the blanks of his checkered history. Sarandon plays a woman he meets along the way who becomes practically smitten with him. This is one of the oddest parts of the film as Bridges' character seems so unstable and aimless that it's hard to understand Sarandon's motivations. The film has a slow pace and hardly any dramatic highpoints. Even the finale leaves much to be desired. The makers and the performers try hard but in the end, it's strictly a mixed bag. Sarandon fans will be disappointed as she doesn't have much beyond the typical 1970s' love interest role here.
