A spoof of the late '80s and early '90s suspense thrillers and murder mysteries, including Basic Instinct, Sleeping With The Enemy, and Cape Fear. A cop/attorney (yes he's both) is seduced by a woman while his wife is having an affair with a mechanic. Lots of other sublots and visual gags in the style of Naked Gun. Check the rating.
Sex, murder and revenge were never this funny.

This is a nod to Carl Reiner's son Rob's mock rockumentary "This is Spinal Tap" which stars Christopher Guest. Guest's character (Nigel Tufnel) proudly displays his amp that also goes to 11. See more
