Chris O'Brien, devote Catholic and rookie cop with LAPD, is assigned to partner with the hard-edged, street-smart Nora Hugosian. A serial killer is loose, and all the victims are low-life guys whom Nora has dealt with. So, when the tire tracks of a police car are found at a murder scene, she's the prime suspect of internal affairs investigator Simon Hertzel. Chris and Nora start an affair, but meanwhile he has suspicions about her. Should he start his own investigation, which would be an act of betrayal, or trust her, as his partner and his lover? When a witness i.d.'s Nora's former partner, Michael Clemence, as the killer, Nora gives Mike an alibi, and things get complicated. Written by
Gina Gershon is extremely hot in this movie. A tough veteran cop, breaking in an innocent looking young catholic rookie. Although the movie is rather disjointed with some mediocre acting, I love Gershon's sensuality and... The story was strong enough to hold my interest beyond the sexy scenes with Gina. As she goes about 'breaking in' her new partner, the pretext was interesting as well as erotic. Ron Silvers' performance seemed especially poor. Allison Eastwood was a disappointment as well. Her young partner seemed to show some potential. The movie deteriorates rapidly as it gets convoluted. This cast and script should have produced an excellent movie. But, She makes it worth a watch!
