Storyline

A female con-artist who sweet-talks wealthy men targeted by her violent boyfriend, then drugs them and makes off with their money, is being herself being watched by another man. He wants to use her talents in a much-bigger scam: ripping off a crime lord by getting at his programmer's computer files. But she starts to have doubts about what he's really after when she finds a huge stash of loot with the disks. He claims no knowledge of the money, she distrusts him, he's using her, things start getting dangerous and even murderous - and then her boyfriend shows up ! Who's scamming whom ?

Wonderful little movie... that nobody has heard of
16 October 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I LOVED this movie. You can't buy it, rent it, or find it... but it's a keeper.

Wonderful chemistry between Braccho and Walken... and Ferrar....

Terrific non stop action and reactions.... loved it.

I've watched my pirated copy maybe 6 times in the last decade... each time showing it to someone who never heard of it.

Find this movie and watch it.

So many films are on TV over and over again - without any of the wit and style of this little film.

I didn't know it was made for TV... my copy is an 8 track I pirated years ago... I hope it lasts.
