Total 80's decadence!
17 September 2003 | by (here on the sofa) – See all my reviews

I LOVED IT!

I happened to be channel surfing on a Saturday afternoon in NJ and came upon this almost-cheesy rip off of Miami Vice with a Sting-lookalike gorgeous man and a cool soundtrack featuring INXS.

I don't remember the plot, but I can recall: A very pretty female lead character who had over-the-top hair styles and a killer bod that did not require a bra

A neat convertible car

Sharks

Australian coastline

A bumbling sherriff?

That's about it.... but if I can find a DVD or video of this, I would love to buy it!

If you see this while channel surfing, please stop and take a look---- I remember it was great fun, and brings me back to when I was a little punk kid.

:p
