Storyline

Betty has a crush on her tennis coach Mike. He keeps on promising to call, but never does - she doesn't know that he's a little dealer. After a failed deal in someone else's district he has to disappear for three months. He contacts Betty again, but she waits in vain - he's killed before they meet. Now she tries to find out what happened, asks around among his friends. This leads her right into the drug scenery. Written by Tom Zoerner <Tom.Zoerner@informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

Trivia

As the film was delayed, Joe Jackson's score was replaced by John Barry who was brought in to beef up the dramatic aspects of the now chronological version of the film. The film would feature about close to 30 minutes of his original score. However, a few scenes in the film did in fact feature a couple of the songs Jackson wrote based on his original score.

Debra Winger in one word in this movie: WOW! She looks amazing. 80s hair and that beautiful smile make this worth watching in itself. The story is a good one (a drug dealing "boyfriend" that the bad guys kill and Betty getting dragged into the whole mess) and the acting is well-done (wait till you see Paul Winfield!). Decent mid-80s-type soundtrack with those kinds of tunes you heard once and forgot. And Debra Winger looking great! If you can't catch it on the cable movie channels, rent it. An inexpensive flash-back with no side effects.
