Derien McCall, a nightmare-plagued ex-cop turned private investigator, takes an odd assignment from Anthea, the wife of a wealthy real-estate magnate, Michael Ferrow-Smith: to flirt with him and see if he expresses interest. Her emotions quickly take over and the flirting becomes more than that. Derien conducts an affair with Michael and breaks off the client relationship with Anthea, but a desperate call from Anthea brings Derien to Michael's house late one night. What's going on, Derien wonders, has she been set up? If so, by whom? Can she solve the crime, avoid imprisonment, and rid herself of the demons of her past? Written by
When Derian's partner is taking photos of Michael Farrow-Smith in a restaurant from a car across the street, you see a flash going off, but no flash would be effective at this distance and, in any case, it would just bounce off the car window, so the photos would be useless. See more »
I saw this movie, on cable, late at night. That, alone, should tell you something. This movie reads like pulp fiction, true. But, that's really all it is. You can tell by the title that it isn't Casablanca. It isn't Gone With the Wind. It isn't even Shawshank Redemption. It's *the right temptation*!!! The word "temptation" should tell you that it's not an oscar winner, folks. So, understanding that it is really nothing more than a romance novel bred with a crime drama...I enjoyed it (A LOT!). There is so much sexual tension in this movie, and the characters are insanely complex. I enjoyed some of the unique bits in this movie; for example, the starlets aren't 18...they actually have a few lines on their face. The lead character also has a pet pig. More than anything I wanted to stand up for Kiefer Sutherland in this movie. I became a fan of his only because of his acting in this film...it's so moving. During a very emotional part of the movie, he started welling up with tears and was so damn moving that I started CRYING (something that I do NOT do at movies...ever). He did a really good job, as did everyone in this movie. The script was cheesy and very pulpy...but if you like corny lines delivered by good actresses/actors, you'll love this movie.
