Working in an Austin, Texas, beauty parlour in 1954, Nadine Hightower endeavours to retrieve some 'art studies' she injudiciously had taken. Her visit to the photographer leaves him dead and her in possession of highly valuable plans of a proposed new road. With both the police and the murderous villains after her she enlists the help of her (almost) ex-husband Vernon, the none too successful owner of the Bluebonnet Bar. Fortunately the thugs are as much no-hopers as the Hightowers.Written by

When Kim Basinger is looking through her closet for lingerie, she pulls down a large grey box labeled "Scarborough's". This is an '80's-era shipping box for the former high-end department store, not a '50's-era box. (Scarborough's is now closed). See more »

This place looks like pure-D dog shit, don't it? You may not think it, but there's enough explosives here... if you put a little gasoline in the right place, light a match at the wrong time... this dump would go up like a Roman candle. There'd be no way they'd ever find your bodies.
[to his henchmen]
Take them on in and shoot them.

This is a very cute comedy caper movie. Kim Basinger is perfect as the ditsy West Texas small town girl, and Jeff Bridges is great as her even dumber husband. Rip Torn is also good as the villain. Plot is pretty simple, but fun. I've shared this with several others in the 35+ year old class, and they all enjoyed it. Very good chemistry between the leads.
