I love this movie! The characters evolve realistically over the course of the movie. You can see and feel their relationship develop and it makes sense. Brooke Adams is fantastic as a strong, yet vulnerable leading lady. She has a very distinctive voice, somewhat like Brenda Vacarro or Kathleen Turner. My favorite thing about this movie, though, is seeing Brian Dennehy as a romantic leading man. This is not how we usually see him, and it is terrific fun! He is gruff, obstinate, yet tender and clever. It was wonderful to watch a movie where the leads are sexy, but not "cookie cutter" Barbie and Ken types, but realistic characters. The movie is an action AND romance movie...and not to spoil anything, but I love the ending!
