Storyline

Cutter, a down on his luck cop, waits for a early retirement from the Palm Springs police due to his leg problem, while spending his days in the local bar. P.I. Brita Burrows offers him a 1000 dollars work to follow her client's husband. While on the job he meets a young hotshot cop, Hareem, who's looking for a Mexican who might be involved in a drug trade and was last seen with their client's husband. He joins the case. Cutter asks his ex-cop buddy Graves, who's haunted by the guilt for killing a boy by mistake, to help out with the job. Cutter likes Brita, Brita wants the client's check, Hareem wants a promotion, and Graves needs some peace for his soul. Written by Anonymous

It's Wombaugh, but something seems lost in translation to film
3 November 1999 | by (Jacksonville, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

This is recognizably Wombaugh's later style of private eye yarn, but something may have been lost in putting it on the tube. He is always more interested in character development than plotting, but the interesting plot lines here all seem to fizzle out in unsatisfactory dead ends. Teri Garr is worth watching as a female shamus as she takes on a job of shadowing a wealthy client's husband who seems unaccountably interested in a sperm bank. Teri enlists the aid of a boozy cop and they keep dodging a seemingly mad killer who keeps crossing their path. That's all I'm going to say about the plot, which is full of surprises. You'll have to find out for yourself if you like the way it turns out. One thing, we never do learn if Teri gets paid. I said paid.
