A millionaire is found dead of heart failure handcuffed to the bed with a home video tape of him and his lover.

Alternate Versions

The UK video, claimed on the box to be "the full uncut version" shows slightly more graphic footage of the sex scenes than the version featured on the UK region 2 DVDs, as well as American R-rated DVD versions and unrated DVD versions. This is noticeable in the scene where the police "investigators" watch the video tape playing in Andrew Marsh's bedroom after his untimely death and when Rebecca Carlson and Frank Dulaney get personal as well professional for the first time.

Don't see the TV version
12 March 2000 | by DeeNine-2See all my reviews

(Note: Over 500 of my movie reviews are now available in my book "Cut to the Chaise Lounge or I Can't Believe I Swallowed the Remote!" Get it at Amazon.)

Not that there is a TV version.

We could also call this 'Madonna on top' or 'Madonna in charge' or maybe 'She can show you the power you can have from the prone position.' The one thing about Madonna, other than having no shame (and I admire her for that) is that she can crawl and not feel the slightest bit reduced.

She's not especially bad in this mediocre thriller, nor especially good. The script is ridiculous and the treatment without a hint of nuance or subtlety. William Dafoe and Joe Mantegna seemed to be acting on rote and Anne Archer was a wash. The problem is the movie is so obviously fake that it's like watching bad TV. There's no point other than kinky sex. I'm not sure why Madonna agreed to do this. I can't believe she needed the money, nor can I believe she didn't care about her reputation as a performing artist. I think her appearance here exposes her weakness: simply put, she has bad taste because this could not in any way further her career.

On the plus side I saw the unrated version and she was very sexy.
