In Dallas, the thirty-one year old arrogant lawyer Gary Wheelan is a wolf, unfaithful husband and gambler. He works at a law firm and presently he is defending the scum Vernon Woods, who has embezzled a large amount from retired people, and Mr. Sloan, who wants to declare his mother senile to administrate her money. Gary wins one bet and when his bookie Doc pays the amount, he decides to buy a Jaguar betting again. Gary offends a telephone operator and later she returns to him telling that she is Shiva (the destroyer and transformer Delty from the Hinduism) and she will destroy his life. From the next day on, Shiva interferes in Gary's life that turns upside-down and he loses his wife, his car, his credit rating and his reputation. What will happen to Gary?

Worst acting I've ever seen!
2 May 2002 | by See all my reviews

Please save your money on this one, this film is maybe one of the worst things I've ever seen. The acting is terrible, the story is lame and goes nowhere fast. Whoever did the casting must be insane because this film has no chemistry between the actors and it's not even good enough for cable t.v. WHAT A BOMB!
