Rita is a sexy call girl in a red Corvette convertible who just met Ray. Ray is an ex-con just released after serving 14 years for a killing he claims he was framed for. When these two get together, sparks fly and temperatures rise. But Ray has a reason not to trust Rita - $1 million has been stashed somewhere in Las Vegas and Ray knows everyone wants it almost as much as they want him dead. When everyone has a hidden agenda, who do you trust? Written by <tommyhenry@mci.newscorp.com>

29 January 2003 | by sore_throatSee all my reviews

Film starts out below average and worsens; last 20 minutes are especially bad as it completely falls apart. Awful script and except for Forsythe (who deserves better than this tripe) the performances range from weak to embarrassing. Film has perhaps the dumbest mobsters in the history of cinema. Occasionally the pathetic nature of the film provides unintended laughs but mainly is just dull and desperate.
