Quotes

Wasco: I'm buying you out.
Bullet: You're what?
Wasco: I'm going to make you a very honorable proposal of a business nature that you're not going to be able to refuse.
Bullet: Oh yeah?
Wasco: God damn, you smell bad, man. Whew. Ahh... Let me run this down to you, Bullet, old baby. Number one, you're a junkie, which means you can't maintain the kind of objectivity that's necessary in an operation like this.

Complicated,intriguing intelligent flick with...Kay Lenz
30 April 2003 | by (St.Louis,Mo.USA) – See all my reviews

I will freely admit that my initial interest in this movie came from not from reading the book (there was a book?) but from the prospect of seeing the unbelievably attractive Kay Lenz frequently nude. How has she developed since 1973 and "Breezy"? (Very very well!) Nevertheless, the movie offered much more than that.

James Wood is a prison guard and a hustler looking for money where he can make it, and he isn't fussy about how. So when he finds a way to score 50K by springing a (nice guy) black activist, he wants in. But..there is also a plot to kill the black activist and he finds himself involved in that too. Meanwhile, he gets involved with Kay Lenz,the gorgeous wife of his cousin, the con who is the brains behind the plot to kill the activist. This flick has twists,turns, and a surprising ending that you will NOT figure out 'till the last few minutes.

Darn good movie. And Kay Lenz looks terrific! Why didn't Playboy grab her for a 10-page pictorial?
