Erin Grant loses care and custody of her daughter when she's divorced from her husband Darrell, a small-time thief. Struggling for money, she is a dancer at a nightclub, where one night Congressman Dilbeck (in disguise) attacks another member of the audience. A spectator, who recognizes Dilbeck and is fond of Erin, offers to get back her daughter by blackmailing Dilbeck. Things do not work out as planned, though. Written by

The book that Pierre (Anthony Jones), the limousine driver, is reading at 1:24:55 while waiting for Demi Moore to show up for her second dance on the Senator's boat is Vol. 9 of Mission Earth: "Villainy Victorious", by Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard. See more »

[Shad appears besides Erin's car while Darrell is holding her at knifepoint inside it]
Drop the knife! You got 'til three. One...
Suck my dick!
Whip the little fella out. Two...

This here's a domestic squabble...!
[Shad seizes his knife hand and wrenches his arm over the window jam, snapping the bone. Darrell screams]
You broke my arm!

It may not have mirrored the book, but it has its own charm. I haven't read the book, so maybe that's why I can judge the movie on its own merits.
Ving Rhames is terrific-- honestly, has he ever had a clunker of a performance? Demi is luscious (the dance scenes, and the cute scene where she's getting dressed/dancing after a shower), and Burt Reynolds is hilarious. I really loved the congressman character meeting the right wing group slathered in vaseline. "Fresh, hot, lint!" indeed! Give it a whirl... it ain't Citizen Kane, but it ain't Battlefield Earth either.
