Storyline

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 Thejus Joseph Jose

Enjoyable though predictable bickering romantic thriller

Combine THE THIN MAN with IT HAPPENED ONE NIGHT and THE FRONT PAGE and what do you get? This is an enjoyable thriller - rival newspaper reporters (Nolte playing Jack Nicholson and Roberts playing herself) try to outscoop each other, get drawn into a suspicious cover-up and wind up joining forces (and falling in love) as they single-handedly solve the mystery. Terrible title but some beautiful cinematography and a plot that moves along entertainingly. It's all predictable, but the fun lies in the constant attempts of the two protagonists to outsmart, outscoop and blatantly lie to each other to get the upper hand. Marsha Mason has two scenes playing a Senator (one without dialogue) in a performance that lasts less than a minute, which would tend to indicate her subplot was cut in the editing room. It's long enough at 123 minutes. If you like the stars and want to see a well-done romantic cops and robbers flick, this is a go.
