A good evening movie with some twists and acouple boo-boo's
7 December 2001 | by (Sarasota, Florida) – See all my reviews

First of all, Linda K. looks so-o-o-o-o-o different with red tresses versus her straight blonde Croc Dundee hair. You forget the other characters she has played. Bruce Willis and Dennis Farina did another movie about police corruption in Pittsburgh so their film council must feature that in their brochure. This film takes excellent advantage of the river, hills, downtown, older homes and tram of Pittsburgh. Though their is the Ever-Present crusty Captain that wants to have the license of the P.I. and the helpful insider (Rockford Files, Simon & Simon, etc. etc.) the movie has sometension and you don't find out the final twist until the end. A few boo-boo's to look for: When Linda is getting shot at in the alley she starts with the silver long-barrelled revolver from her boyfriend but it transmutes into a short-barrelled blued handgun. In her second appearance at the Union Hall she is braless and then has one on as she comes upon the crime scene where the Big Mouth's wife is killed. I am told that 20 year old film that has sat undeveloped in a camera in an attic would probably not be able to be developed, but no one was willing to say "Absolutely Not." I applaud her for doing her own extended nude scene and not ripping us off with a body double. Most of the badges are authentic round Pittsburgh badges but at least one is a generic eagle-on-top badge. All that being said, rent it or buy it - it will be worth the price.
