***SPOILERS*** With Dr. Philip Benesh's, Powers Boothe, marriage in trouble when his wife Ellen, Pam Dawber,found a love note addressed to Dr. Sheila Prosser (Rosalind Chao), a fellow psychiatrist, he promises her that he'll never as much as flirt with another woman again and that his affair with Sheila was the only time he cheated on her.
Back in the courthouse as a police forensic psychiatrist Philip meets pretty court stenographer Corrie Calvin, Lisa Collins,who's assigned on a case that he's called as a state witness and she falls obsessively and dangerously in love with the tall dark and handsome shrink.
Knowing what is hanging in the balance, his marriage and two daughters, Philip tries to distances himself from the aggressive Corrie to the point where he tells her if she keeps bothering him and his family he'll get a restraining order against her. Corrie has been calling his home at all hours day and night and even shows up at a birthday party at Philips home dressed as a pink bunny.
Not taking no for an answer Corrie devises a plan to get back at Philip for rejecting her and that plan has to do with her being murdered and pining that murder on Dr. Philip Benesh. A bit convoluted but still interesting movie about madness and obsession and a poor slob who ends up at the receiving end of justice that can possibly strap him in the San Quinten gas chamber.
Corrie in her vindictive attempt to frame Philip for her death made the evidence almost air-tight but lefts clues to the police that ended up exonerating him. Wanting to destroy his marriage more then anything else Corrie forced Philip, or Phlip's psychiatrist Dr, Mike Dann (Jarion Monroe), to admit in court that he cheated on his wife not once but three times during their 12 year marriage.
Even the evidence that could exonerate Philip wasn't used in court because the person Dr. Clarke, Victor Talmadge, a forensic psychiatrist in Vancouver Canada who Corrie tried to destroy, like she's doing to Philip, refused to testify fearing it would end his marriage, yes he had an affair with Corrie back in Canada, like it did Philip's.
The movie ends with Philip going to Corrie's apartment and after ransacking it finds the piece of evidence that proves that he's innocent of her murder and in fact proves that she killed herself like he always said.
It took Philip to go and break the law, by breaking into Corrie's apartment, but it in the end saved his freedom or life but his marriage was already over due to what the trial brought out about his secret love life.
