She's green and eager. He's seasoned and jaded. They're reporters for rival Chicago newspapers assigned to cover the same story. He offers tips and advice; she scoops him. Then, their snappy patter, repartee, and ripostes get romantic even as their competitive juices overflow. Will corrupt scientists at a chemical company whose goats give cancer-causing milk kill the cub and the columnist, or will they escape with their lives and their by-lines to hear wedding bells?

Julia Roberts and Nick Nolte reportedly did not get along throughout filming. Nolte would go on to say that this was the worst movie he had ever done while Roberts later said that Nolte was the worst actor she had ever worked with. See more »
The lighting during the scene by the lake when Sabrina, completely naked and wet and hiding behind Peter to shield herself from the boy scouts, changes from shot to shot, at some points being early morning and in other shots being late afternoon. Sabrina's messy wet hair is also inconsistent during this scene. See more »
Honey, we've been rescued.
[Peter steps forward, Sabrina, completely naked and wet, grabs him and pulls him back, going from an embarrassed smile to great alarm]
What are you dong?
Don't do this to me, please.
Was I hearing things, or did you call me a second rate novelist?
I-I... I was kidding. I've never even read your book. I'm sure it's quite brilliant.

Bland and unimaginative but many films are that what really drags this down is not the lack of chemistry between the leads but the transparent loathing they have for each other. The production of this was notoriously contentious between Roberts and Nolte and their utter abhorrence is something that seeps out of every frame of the movie. Sometimes that can fuel a set and make the picture better, as it did on I Married a Witch where Veronica Lake and Fredric March's mutual animosity somehow translated into a kinetic on screen chemistry, such is not the case here however it just makes an already weak picture that much worse. A good supporting cast and decent production values aren't enough to save this turkey. It stinks!
