Terry Brogan, an aging football player in L.A., is cut early in the season; he needs money, so he takes a job from a shady friend of his, Jake Wise, to track down Wise's girlfriend, Jessie, who's somewhere in Mexico. She's also the daughter of a very wealthy land developer, who owns Terry's team. He heads for Cozumel, finds Jessie, and promptly falls in love with her. He thinks it's mutual, then without warning, she heads back to L.A. and Jake. What's going on with her, and what's the connection between Jake's hold on Jessie and the various politicians, lawyers, and environmentalists who seem to be converging on some sort of land deal?

Phil Collins was contacted by director Taylor Hackford to record a song for the movie. Phil Collins had written "Against All Odds" in 1981 for his first solo album, "Face Value", and the song was originally entitled, "How Can You Just Sit There". Phil Collins left the song off of the album because he felt he had too many ballads on "Face Value" already. After Phil Collins's contact with Taylor Hackford, he recorded the song in two days, one day in New York, the other in Los Angeles. See more »

Not the best I've seen, but with an excellent cast and entertaining screenplay it is still a favourite of mine. I liked all the soundtrack, perhaps with the exception of Phil Collins end theme which is bland for this kinda movie. If you have a spare couple hours and you're into drama with personality give this one a look. Don't know why the owners of this site insist on ten lines of comment, must be because it's American and Americans love to talk and talk and blether their stupid heads off. anyways go and see this film / movie in a cinema or movie theatre if you can, but if not possible a DVD will suffice. To finally end my ten lines I just gotta say support your local picture house and try stay happy in this nutty world. If this post is deleted well que sera
