A sexy executive (Kari Wuhrer, "Eight Legged Freaks", "Anaconda") is seduced by a younger man (Stephen Baldwin, "The Usual Suspects") into stealing $40 million from his politically ambitious father. As the elaborate swindle is set in motion and their erotically-charged affair reaches a boiling point, the two begin to question the intentions of one another. Is he pampered rich boy getting his kinky kicks with an experienced older woman or is she a shrewd black widow out to make a killing? As the bodies pile up and the double-crosses multiply, one will be left holding the fortune, while the other will be caught in a web of deadly deception.
Who is going to be the overall winner? Wuhrer or Baldwin? You cannot help but wonder but what happens to them in the film is their own stupid faults. It seems that no one is this world can get enough and it is true. Everyone wants what they cannot have and what is not theirs to be deserved or had. I have watched this film many times, and there is so many double crosses, over-laps, deceit and betrayal that when I think about it, it is almost as if that the film is a jigsaw puzzle, whose pieces have been scattered after completion.
All though good, I am sorry to say that the "money" thrillers have been done time and time again and now, it is hard to find or come up with new and unique ideas.
