Sgt. Kay Howard gets topless, and she looks good
5 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Before she was a member of Baltimore's Homicide division, Melissa Leo was Cookie a teenage runaway who ends up turning tricks in New York after meeting the personable Duke (Dale Midkiff, best known for his lead in "Pet Semetary"), who lays some good old pimpology on this naive innocent girl, much to the chagrin of Cookie's brother who also ran away from home with her. One day, Cookie wises up after her fellow hooker friend gets the stuffing beat out of her and tries to leave, but Duke is on her tail. This movie could have been something special due to the talent involved,but as it plays out, it turns out pretty lame. The story is nothing special and goes in circles for too long, Midkiff is far from a convincing heavy, and I started to get bored before it was over The film is only worth a curiosity view to see TV stars past and future (the aforementioned Leo topless, Khandi Alexander before"Newsradio", and Julie 'Catwoman' Newmmar in the Queen Bee part). That alone raises it up a grade for me.

Eye Candy: Melissa Leo, Samantha Fox, and a few extras get topless

Where I Saw It: Showtime Extreme

My Grade: C
