Veteran reporter Peter Brackett is enjoying new found fame after his book, "White Lies" is published. When he is asked by his newspaper "The Chicago Chronicle" to report on a train crash, he notices new reporter Sabrina Peterson. Brackett's complacency gets rudely shocked by Peterson's report for the rival "Chicago Globe." What follows next is a mad race between the reporters who then cook up possible events that lead up to the crash. After an initial spate of mad reporting, both settle down to get the facts straight, which leads them to uncover opposing information. When each gets setup to be killed at the same place, they escape, and then agree to work together. While they initially do not trust one another, they eventually come to work together to uncover the truth behind the train crash. Written by

Many critics feel that the film is best remembered for the Julia Roberts was caught swimming naked by Nick Nolte and a group of boy scouts. This scene was widely regarded as the money shot for much of the film's advertising campaign. 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.
[steps forward; Sabrina is forced to step with him]
Oh, what are you doing? Walk backwards!

Here in Greece this film was distributed under the title "Front Page Love", so I was not that horrified from the title as the first reviewer (although this annihilation of the original title is a painful story here, causing major trouble especially when you're looking for a rental at a video store and their database has only the Greek title). As a movie it is an effort to imitate old cop movies full of exchange of witty lines and intellectual face-off. The scenario and the directing is not bad, but something about the two leads spoils it. They just don't have it for such roles. Apart from that, it's a pretty enjoyable action flick.
