Storyline

When the ambitious photographer Andi returns from a modeling session in Mexico, she finds a kilogram cocaine in her bag. In panic - and thinking of her prior convictions - she immediately dumps it in the sink. She suspects her star model Cathy and calls her to account for it, but she denies everything. When Cathy's found dead shortly after, Andi is under suspect. She employs ex-cop Dave Murphy to help her out and to protect her from the psychopathic dealer, who wants back his cocaine from her.

SIMILAR TO WHAT HAS TOO OFTEN BEEN DONE BEFORE, AND DONE BETTER
19 August 2004 | by rsoonsaSee all my reviews

When a film is produced with virtually no apparent attempt being made to achieve something original within its footage, one often tends to look for creative fillips here or there from the direction, screenplay, dialogue or acting, but here such are few and far between. During this by the numbers work, a former policeman who had been "asked to resign" (tacitly due to his incorruptibility), is now the wonted private eye, in this case hired by a fashion photographer seeking a way out of a knotty predicament. The plight that the photographer, Andi Robinson (Season Hubley), must attempt to avoid is her pending arrest for the murder of one of her models, Kathy (Deborah Driggs), who smuggled a kilo of cocaine into the United States from Mexico, utilizing Andi's luggage following a photo session at Acapulco, and because Andi has a felony record involving cocaine she is the primary suspect for the homicide, therefore depending upon P.I. Dave Murphy (Michael Nouri) to rescue her from a distressful position. Worsening her situation is Kathy's partner in crime, Zach, who believes that Andi is yet in possession of the smuggled drug and will stop at nothing to regain it, all this while the district attorney responsible for Murphy's forced resignation (and who holds mayoral ambition), is being blackmailed by Zach for photographed sexual improprieties with no other than the late Kathy, all crammed into a crowded scenario. Hubley performs earnestly while Nouri plays well in spite of his cliched role, occasionally delivering a trenchant bit of dialogue, and a pair of supporting players deserve attention: Martina Castle as another ill-starred model and Dean Devlin who creates his wry role as an overqualified manager of an establishment purveying pornographic items. A good portion of the film is spent in arresting the action so that young women in bikinis or less may pose and gambol about, but during those times when cinematographer Kent Wakeford is allowed to do so, he devises interesting compositions, although there is little else that is fresh in this limply directed and poorly scored routine crime entry.
