In 1994 I taped this film because I knew that I would want to see it again and again. Patricia Arquette showed her great talents and made you feel sorry for her while she was being killed and thrown down a hill like a piece of garbage. She was very attractive as an informant for the FBI and the agent took advantage of her petite sexy figure and good looks.(But still loved his wife and kids!) Her sister tried to warn her about fooling around with a married man, but she just did not want to listen and got PG. However, nowadays, there would be no doubt at all as to who the father really was, with DNA and CSI experts, Murder Does Not PAY and Never WILL!. The FBI agent did a bad job of trying to pass the lie detector test and even turned to his Catholic Faith, but had a hard time going to confession. The only way they could determine what happened to the victim was a Cross that was placed around her neck by her loving sister. This is a true story which makes it very much like real life and the mistakes that young gals and guys make thinking the GRASS IS GREENER ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE FENCE!
