Quotes

Mickey Davis: [Mickey's voice as Scott Muller reads from Mickey's Diary] There are two me's really, Mickey and Michelle. Mickey is this mousy little house frau... Who hasn't taken a real chance in her whole life. Michelle, on the other hand, is up for anything. The only trouble with Michelle is that she lives and breathes only on these pages.

Captivating Film
20 December 2006 | by whpratt1See all my reviews

This film starts out with a drive over the Golden Gate Bridge and into the City of San Francisco with fantastic music in the background and through out the entire picture. John Getz (Ray Davis), " A Day without a Mexican" plays the role as a husband who writes children's books and has reached the top of his field. Ray is married to Barbara Williams,(Mickey Davis),"Forever Evil" who is getting rather unsatisfied with her marriage as her husband is always at his typewriter and never in bed where she wants him. Steven Bauer,(Scott Muller) "The Lost City", actually runs into Mickey Davis and things progress to the boiling point between the both of them. David Caruso,(Buddy Calamara),"Blue City", plays the role of a slime ball, who is a very evil character and looks quite young in 1984. Great tale with plenty of twists and turns and I simply Love The Ending. Enjoy
