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 stars Whoopi Goldberg, who is very identifiably African-American but plays a character called Rita Rizzoli, which name is very identifiably Italian. Roger Ebert has commented that "the Italian name is much remarked upon but never explained". See more »

Goofs

When Whoopi breaks into Kroll's home and catches him swimming nude with nothing but a gold swim cap, it is noticeable that the actor was wearing a gold-colored speedo-type swimsuit for the medium shot. See more »

I worked in the film Fatal Beauty.
17 February 2001 | by (Berlin, Germany) – See all my reviews

I actually worked in the film Fatal Beauty. Now, dont get me wrong, I didnt have any lines, and wasnt actually a character in it. I was what you call ATMOSPHERE. The atmosphere people are the ones that walk around in the background of scenes. I had heard from a friend that there was a new Whoopi Goldberg film in the process, and that they needed more atmosphere people for one or two of the scenes. I jumped at the chance and ran down. They were filming the beginning credit scenes in down town East Los Angeles.... and I mean the deepest of EAST LOS ANGELES!!!! First, they dressed me up as a male prostitute, and then later as a .... I guess you would say a JOHN.... you know, the ones that pay the prostitues, or at least thats what they told me.

And you can actually see me in the final cut... nope, this guy didnt end up on the cutting room floor!! In the beginning of the film, you see Whoopi walking down the street, as she heads to a local bar in which she is wearing a leopard print gold jacket , yellow mini skirt, blonde wig, and sunglasses in the shape of two hands with red fingernails. Just befor she enters the bar,... (credits still rolling, and music playing), they do a camera shot of the bar from accross the street..... THATS WHERE YOU SEE ME!! I walk right in front of the camera with my arm over the shoulder of an absolutely beautiful woman. And, WHALA!!! Im imortalized in a Whoopi Goldberg film forever!! I had a blast!!.... And yes, I did like the film. As far as Im concerned,.... Whoopi Goldberg doesnt make bad films!! There was lots of action, a little romance, and fine acting. A must see..... and dont forget to look for me!

:) Sincerly, Scott Christopher
