Jackie and Denise were so funny together
24 February 2005 | by See all my reviews

After spoiled brat bimbo actress/model Jackie arrives at the apartment of a man she was dating, she finds dead bodies and ends up being protected by tough, tomboyish cop Denise. Denise cannot believe anyone could be so naive and demanding. But she isn't taken seriously by her fellow police officers, so she has to take this assignment. In the process of trying to solve the murders--which are somehow connected to a tell-all book Jackie's latest boyfriend was writing--Jackie and Denise learn to understand each other and each even develops qualities the other has.

I really like Jackie and Denise together. Sure, the movie was fluff, but it was the kind of fluff I like and very funny for a murder mystery.
