Storyline

Cyd Morse is an actress, but her biggest role so far is as a recurrent guest on '"Miami Vice"'. She earns her living with underwater dancing at the bar of the Eden Rock Hotel in Miami Beach. There she's approached by ex-jockey Woody; they start dating and kind-of fall in love. However it's a short luck: one evening he's brutally beaten to death in his hotel room. Cyd's a witness and gets hold of a key Woody had around his neck. She's got to flee from the murderer. Due to an accident she meets golfer Jack Connett. He can't resist her charme and helps her on the search for the lock to the key and the flight from the murderer. Written by Tom Zoerner <Tom.Zoerner@informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

Cyndi was very good:
31 December 1998 | by Rick-135See all my reviews

Cyndi was very good in this film. Her acting has come a long way from her performance in Vibes. This film was Cyndi's first dramatic role (well the film has some funny moments) but more so is a thriller then a comedy. The plot is not that good (like Vibes) but for some reason,I like this movie better then Cyndi's debut film. With each project I see her in,she is only getting better.
