Bomb with Liza as a dumb hooker
13 January 2003 | by (tx) – See all my reviews

Hard enough to believe that Liza would do this Drivel. And man does she bomb,Whos idea was it to portray her as a high priced call girl at 42 y/o? .Liza has done some wonderful movies but she is neither sexy nor pretty/She looks like a tired old whore who needs to be in detox half the time. Burt Reynolds doesnt do much better as a washed up cop who Liza hires to protect her.Some of the dialogue and plot scenes are so ridiculously bad its unintentionally funny. Like Liza getting ready to do it with a guy dressed like the big bad woof.Burt stealing a ladys car right in front of her and she is standing there saying are you a crazy person ,help hes stealing my car and then she says give me back my purse after hes already pulled away.she should have been shot.James Remar is a dud as a bad guy but at least in the scene where he is taking Liza to the bad guys house he tells her to shut up when he asks her what plays shes been in since he was a dancer and she says flower drum song.His response ,flower drum song? Would you shut up bi**h. He finds out shes been wired and says You bi*** your wired, and that sums up this movie.. Stinks Bomb
