Storyline

What does it take to trust? Melanie Hudson is an L.A. police officer, a loner on the trail of a serial killer who slits the throats of beautiful women just after they have made love. Mel is independent and curious; at night, she drives the streets. Her partner on the force is her ex-lover, Nathan, who still loves her. Their prime suspect is Connor Ashcroft, the playboy son of a powerful U.S. Senator. They investigate him; he's unconcerned and comes on to Melanie. They also interview Connor's former girlfriends and a family shrink. Evidence suggests he's innocent, so Melanie takes Connor up on his invitation; Nathan is jealous and he's worried. Whom should Melanie trust? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Joan Severance topless.
5 June 2012 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Which is the only reason it gets two stars and not one. Forget the story, the plot, the characters, etc...

Joan stars as a beautiful cop (could she star as anything that isn't beautiful), because we all know that really hot men and women become civil servants pulling down 50K a year, right? But hey! Don't sweat it! We got Joan gearing down, and that's all we need.

How she wasn't nominated for an Oscar is beyond me. Let's face it, she does some of her best work when she puts on a shirt to answer the door! I won't even bother telling you what it's about, other than to say this is right up there with such classics as "Hard Ticket to Hawaii", "Busty Coeds v. Lusty Cheerleaders", and "Busty cops." I saw this one night when I couldn't sleep on Cinemax at 3 in the morning. My insomnia was cured,because as bad as this was, it was like a train wreck: you shouldn't stare but you can't help it.

Avoid this at all costs.
