A failed pilot for a drama about two war journalists, a cynical and disillusioned man and an idealist woman who must deal with the horrors of war as well as their own opposing viewpoints while reporting from Uzbekistan.

Two years later, Wiley's out of jail, bartending in L.A., trying to forget her. Kate shows up with a new name, a fiancé who's a mob boss, and a scheme to steal and sell a priceless Modigliani if Wiley will forge a painting to put in its place.

Who will win out: the mob, the FBI, Wiley, his lying cheating sweetie, or some surprising combination? Written by
Gee, I hate to be the only dissenting voice about this film, Framed, an HBO Production from 1990. I love Jeff Goldblum, and Kristin Scott- Thomas is always good.
An art forger, Wiley (Goldblum) in cahoots with his girlfriend Kate (Thomas) is arrested by Interpol a few minutes after she leaves with 5 million francs. He goes to prison for two years. When he is released, he goes to LA and gets a job as a bartender.
Who should he see walking down the street one day but Kate? Believing that she set him up to take a fall, he approaches her. She's on the run from a ruthless man with a very odd name. Ultimately he learns she's engaged to a wealthy mobster (Michael Lerner) and has a plan to steal his Modigliani. She wants Wiley to paint a copy of it so it can be switched, then they will have the original and run off together.
Wiley is then approached by a man from the FBI named Joak who wants to catch Kate and lock her up and elicits Wiley's help. He agrees.
This film was certainly well-acted, and I liked the story, but I was bored. Maybe it was just me. There were some funny bits - the wedding, as was mentioned, is just one. The whole wedding scene, including an accomplice bringing in the cake, was excellent.
Just felt it moved too slowly.
