Storyline

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 Peter Zweers <peterz@pi.net>

An eye opener for men!
16 April 2006 | by newfiesailorSee all my reviews

First things first. I know that this movie is about a femme fatale who preys on men using her sexuality and manipulation, so I don't expect her to be a good girl. But this woman just gets away with too much. The men are just witless pawns to whatever game she plays, even a street smart PI. The scene in her jeep is just laughable. The film would have definitely benefited from a worthy adversary chasing her down. I could imagine a scene with Denis Farina as a cop putting a good scare in Fiorentino's character in the smoky bar.

All that said, the movie is finely acted and finely done. It hits some right notes on small town values and the way people treat each other compared to city-folk. The way the seen it all bartender treats Fiorentino's character near the start says it all. Peter Berg is great as the naive, small town boy with big dreams who is looking for a way out. But this is Linda Fiorentino's film and she absolutely sizzles as the cold hearted, manipulative, scheming predatory bitch. She is unattainable, sexy and smart, causing men to rise to the challenge, thereby allowing her to play the dominant role. To all you guys who think that they are in charge in their relationship, watch this film and beware!

I also enjoyed the ending. It does not fall into the usual Hollywood cliché of bad people getting their just due. A scary film for all single guys looking for Mrs. Right.
