hot stuff TV style, before Brosnan became a movie star
8 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A few years after his success as Remington Steele, Pierce Brosnan made this film with Jobeth Williams and Virginia Madsen. Though highly derivative, it makes for very intriguing viewing.

Williams is a psychiatrist with a few personal problems of her own. She meets Brosnan and, like any red-blooded, healthy woman, falls for him. He's a professor and author, and how every female student he has isn't running after him is unclear. Madsen plays a patient of Williams', and she has even more issues than Williams has. One of them concerns this man she's involved with...whom Williams finally realizes is Brosnan. The question is, is this young woman delusional? Is she fabricating a relationship as Brosnan claims, or is Brosnan the liar? Williams approaches the dilemma as a woman in love and not a psychiatrist, making her your pretty typical desperate female. One would hope a professional person would behave a bit differently, but life experience shows us this isn't necessarily the case.

I found this film very entertaining with some hot, sexy love scenes, and it keeps you guessing. After you think you've figured it out, it'll have a surprise for you.
