Storyline

Rita is a sexy call girl in a red Corvette convertible who just met Ray. Ray is an ex-con just released after serving 14 years for a killing he claims he was framed for. When these two get together, sparks fly and temperatures rise. But Ray has a reason not to trust Rita - $1 million has been stashed somewhere in Las Vegas and Ray knows everyone wants it almost as much as they want him dead. When everyone has a hidden agenda, who do you trust? Written by <tommyhenry@mci.newscorp.com>

Kari Wurher looks good...that's about it.
4 January 2000 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Wonderfully written dialogue, such as, "Well, if it isn't d--kface" abounds in this Skinimax-style film that won't do much for you unless you're a Kari Wuhrer fan. In that case, there's plenty to see, but keep the remote close by. Fans of William Forsythe will appreciate his Elvis one-liners and fighting style-- it's as if the King himself has hit you with an uppercut.
