Storyline

In Paris, Interpol arrests an art forger ten minutes after his sweetheart leaves the apartment with 5 million francs. She's set him up. Two years later, Wiley's out of jail, bartending in L.A., trying to forget her. Kate shows up with a new name, a fiancé who's a mob boss, and a scheme to steal and sell a priceless Modigliani if Wiley will forge a painting to put in its place. An odd FBI agent named Joak threatens Wiley with more jail time if Wiley doesn't help sting Kate. Who will win out: the mob, the FBI, Wiley, his lying cheating sweetie, or some surprising combination? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

sounds better than it is
1 July 2015 | by blanche-2See all my reviews

Gee, I hate to be the only dissenting voice about this film, Framed, an HBO Production from 1990. I love Jeff Goldblum, and Kristin Scott- Thomas is always good.

An art forger, Wiley (Goldblum) in cahoots with his girlfriend Kate (Thomas) is arrested by Interpol a few minutes after she leaves with 5 million francs. He goes to prison for two years. When he is released, he goes to LA and gets a job as a bartender.

Who should he see walking down the street one day but Kate? Believing that she set him up to take a fall, he approaches her. She's on the run from a ruthless man with a very odd name. Ultimately he learns she's engaged to a wealthy mobster (Michael Lerner) and has a plan to steal his Modigliani. She wants Wiley to paint a copy of it so it can be switched, then they will have the original and run off together.

Wiley is then approached by a man from the FBI named Joak who wants to catch Kate and lock her up and elicits Wiley's help. He agrees.

This film was certainly well-acted, and I liked the story, but I was bored. Maybe it was just me. There were some funny bits - the wedding, as was mentioned, is just one. The whole wedding scene, including an accomplice bringing in the cake, was excellent.

Just felt it moved too slowly.
