Intriguing, if shallow modern-day noir...
7 May 2016 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

Rob Lowe is well-cast as a yacht racing captain/gigolo on the east coast, one who's conspiring with a sniveling con-man to get rid of a sheltered heiress worth millions, but the role isn't even one-layer deep, not requiring much from the actor (instead, the picture flatters Lowe with a series of dreamy movie star close-ups). Less a murder-mystery than a magazine-spread posing as one, this gauzy, posh affair set in the Hamptons was written by Dick Wolf as if he were trying for a potboiler novella. Meg Tilly does fine in an illogical role, John Glover once again works wonders as the proverbial hissable villain, but the other performances fall short. The movie, too, for all its mechanical twists that attempt to ratchet up the suspense, slides quickly from the mind, almost before its finished. ** from ****
