Storyline

Runaway Jo moves in with her friend Penny in New York and gets a job in a strip bar. One night, she agrees to have sex with one of the handsome guests for money. She notices that he's carrying a briefcase handcuffed to his wrist but pays no attention to it at the time. He takes her to a hotel and they spend the night there.

So-so TV movie with top stars!
30 December 2001 | by (New York City, NY) – See all my reviews

What surprised me was why would the likes of Gregory Harrison consent to do this trivial film in the first place? He's much to good as an actor. And such a handsome one at that. Remember him in "For Ladies Only" as the male stripper would-be actor? Excellent stuff and much more worthy of his presence. And his Broadway stint in "Steel Pier", the musical several years back. To see him in this, I guess made before the musical, was uncool. Playing a would be assassin who gets caught by a bimbo. That's what I thought of Alexandra Powers' work as the long suffering Jo. First of all, her voice was obnoxious and her acting came in at a close second. Where do they find these actresses? Did she audition for the part? How could anyone see any potential in her? This surprises me. In this movie I wanted Harrison to win. Written and Directed by Sandor Stern, who must have been blind when he cast this movie. Then suddenly we see Robert Prosky in a small role as the dame's papa who seems uncomfortable in doing the role and the movie. I know Bob's work and he's so much better than this. Is it a matter of the bucks? The work? You know, keep working, no matter what? How sad that such talented people are subjected to such trite productions. Please, can we get these so-so actresses off the screen? Scott Valentine turned in a decent performance as the friend of the dame's husband, a cop. Mr. Harrison, you're too good for this kind of film. There's so much more out there. Have you thought of coming back to Broadway? You'd be welcome. What about Billy Flynn in "Chicago"? Certainly you'd do better than George Hamilton. And Bob, come back to Broadway. We miss you.
