The uneventful life of the businessman Charles Driggs suddenly changes when he meets the wild and sexy Lulu. When he accepts her offer to drive him back to his office, she instead takes him out of town and on a trip, leaving behind his old life. Posing as a married couple, Charles and "Audrey" (which turns out to be Lulu's real name) visit her mother and her high school reunion. At this reunion they meet Audrey's violent ex-husband Ray, who has just released from prison. When Ray makes it clear that he wants Audrey back, that is when the real trouble begins. Written by

When the script was submitted to Orion, producers asked the studio to give them an answer quickly. They felt that since the budget was so low, if the answer was no, they could take it to another studio. The studio agreed to produce it in less than a week. See more »
When Charles and Lulu start making love in the motel, Charles's lipstick smear on the upper lip first moves from right to left, then disappears and reappears (on the left). See more »
A true type of roller-coaster movie from beginning to end.
This movie really keeps you going without knowing what's coming around the corner. Jeff Daniels and Melanie Griffith were terrific together and Ray Liotta added a great dark side to the comedy of Daniels and Griffith. What looked like a strange love story turned into the strangest ending which kept my interest right to the end. Great movie which showed Daniels and Griffith are good actors. Have seen this movie at least 15 times and still love it!!!!
