A US Treasury Agent finds himself in opposition with his fellow agents who are involved in gun running. This puts him on the run and into the hands of a Greek mafia chief whom he saves from an assassination attempt by the agency. Actually he had become attracted to the mafia chief's wife, who reminds him of his comatose wife, and in saving her also saved the chief. All of which sets up an affair between the agent and the wife. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

Baboon Upholstery?
20 January 2001 | by (Michigan) – See all my reviews

This film is now circulating on cable, so there ought to be a comment for the guidance of viewers. Let's see---how can movies of this genre be distinguished from one another?

Well, this one has the following features which infrequently occur in the genre: *The Arkansas Greek Mafia, *Two women kissing, *A chain-saw in a guitar-case, *Brenda Bakke's Belly Button, *An underwater clip-reload, *A grown-up who puts on his baseball glove to go to the living room to watch the game on TV, *A chair with a baboon pattern on the upholstery fabric.
