Storyline

A screenwriter is sent to Mexico to develop a story that can be used to wrap up a movie presently in production. Given a very short time allotment, the writer immerses himself in the seamier side of a Mexican beach resort, but soon finds himself involved in a 'body organ for profit' operation. Drugged, he has one of his own kidneys removed, and then, with a woman he isn't sure he can trust, he sets out to expose the ring... with quite a surprise ending for the viewer. Written by BOB STEBBINS <stebinsbob@aol.com>

Trivia

George Clooney is credited with the small role of "Lip Syncing Transvestite" in this movie. Clooney, who was two years away from his breakthrough role in ER (1994), was still a struggling actor in LA, doing guest-starring and semi-regular roles on shows like Roseanne (1988) and The Golden Girls (1985). This movie's lead actor, Miguel Ferrer, is Clooney's first Cousin (Ferrer is the son of Clooney's father's sister, Rosemary Clooney). See more »

She did it for the money. We all do it for the money.
5 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of those films that have a lot of characters you are familiar with, but just can't remember where, or remember their names.

But, the focus is on three people, so the rest don't matter.

I don't recall Miguel Ferrer (Traffic, "Crossing Jordan") in many leads, so it is refreshing to see him here. He is starring with his ex, Leilani Sarelle (Basic Instinct). Not hard to get some passion up here.

Ferrer is in Mexico researching a murder for a screenplay when he runs into Sarelle, who is part of a body parts harvesting team.

At least he gets his story, and it has George Clooney as a trans.

Not really a bad hour and a half.
