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>

Dysfunctional movie without much to offer beyond the presence of Cyndi Lauper...
22 January 2006 | by moonspinner55See all my reviews

Pop-star Cyndi Lauper's bid for an acting career never gained momentum, partly due to poor choices like this one. Theatrically unreleased comedy-drama about an actress/cocktail bar mermaid (don't ask) who gets involved with race-track low-life is strictly amateur night in terms of directing, writing and production. Some of the cinematography isn't bad (there's a terrific shot early on of Lauper in her mermaid costume in a tank of water), but without a decent script, the images have nothing substantial to fall back on. Cyndi's supporting cast--David Keith, Johnny Pinto, Jose Perez and Anita Morris--aren't strong enough to help carry the weight, and Lauper still isn't strong enough as an actress to bear the burden of a C-minus picture by herself. *1/2 from ****
