Entertaining if you like nudity
10 August 1999 | by (SE PA) – See all my reviews

This is an excuse to show a lot of very attractive female skin dressed up as a murder mystery....except the murder hasn't happened yet. Ignore the plot. Instead enjoy Shauna O'Brien trying (unsuccessfully) to seduce the investigating detective. Why was she unsuccessful? Well, in the "unedited" version he's paid a visit at the stationhouse by his wife (played by Griffin Drew). After some handcuff play you understand why he's faithful to his wife. It's worth seeing at least once, but very hard to find around here.
