User Reviews

Treat Williams's presence and Virginia Madsen is convincing.

The singular fate of a detective victim of a trap stirred up by a grasping woman. It is necessary to wait almost for the end of the film so that the intrigue is finally put. In the meantime, one misses, in spite of the presence of Treat Williams and Virginia Madsen ("Hot to Trot").
