Storyline

Rita Rizzoli is a narcotics police officer with a plethora of disguises. When a drug shipment is hijacked, the thieves don't know that the drug is unusually pure and packs of "Fatal Beauty" begin turning up next to too many dead bodies. Mike Marshak works for the original owner of the drugs and tries to tell himself that since he does not handle the drugs, he is "clean". Mike becomes Rita's constant companion as the drug hijackers (who are nearly psychotic and very well armed) are hunted, while more and more bodies continue to turn up.

Trivia

This movie features a "Make my day" line. This type of line was popularized in the Dirty Harry movie Sudden Impact (1983) and was apparently first used in this type of cop movie in Vice Squad (1982). Interestingly, co-scriptwriter Dean Riesner has screen-writing credits for Dirty Harry (1971) and its sequels The Enforcer (1976) and Sudden Impact (1983) (uncredited). Fatal Beauty (1987) was Riesener's final movie writing credit. See more »

This is even worse than I expect!
12 August 1999 | by See all my reviews

Goldberg-movies in generally are not so good and I have accept that but this is too much. This movie is in my short list of terrible movies. I just can`t understand why they do so stupid movies like this. Whoopi is not funny, period. 2/10
