A bright assistant D.A. investigates a gruesome hatchet murder and hides a clue he found at the crime scene. Under professional threats and an attempt on his life, he goes on heartbroken because evidence point to the woman he still loves.
Bridget Gregory has a lot going for her: she's beautiful, she's intelligent, she's married to a doctor. But all of this isn't enough, as her husband Clay finds out. After she persuaded him to sell medicinal cocaine to some drugdealers, she takes off with the money, almost a million dollars, and goes undercover in a mid-American smalltown. Because Clay has to pay off a loan shark who'll otherwise damage him severely, he keeps sending detectives after her, trying to retrieve the money. When Bridget meets Mike Swale, a naive local who is blinded by her beauty and directness, she devises an elaborate, almost diabolical scheme to get rid of Clay once and for all.Written by

In the scene in the bar, after Bridget slapped Mike at the office for touching her and the two are making amends, when prompted by Mike for more information, Bridget actually tells him some truth, saying she stole a million dollars and spent it all. While the figure was in reality $700,000 and she had only spent a little of it, it's one of the few times Bridget is actually honest with Mike. However, since the story seems incredible, Mike immediately dismisses it as another lie. See more »
Just before Bridget sees the fuel gauge is empty, she is smoking. After cutting to the close-up of the gauge and then back to Bridget, her cigarette has disappeared. See more »
One of my favorite films. Linda Fiorentino is wonderful as the evil Bridgit. Your mouth keeps dropping open as you say "She can't be about to do that," and then she does. When I first saw the film in a packed theater the audience was audibly gasping at some of the plot twists. Do yourself a favor if you're seeing it for the first time, go in knowing nothing at all about the story. Part of the fun is the rollar coaster ride of what happens next. Highly recommended!
