The movie was originally set in San Francisco, but was changed to Miami to suit Sylvester Stallone, who subsequently left the project. Stallone had previously starred in Cobra (1986) which was also based on the same Paula Gosling novel as Fair Game (1995) See more »

Okay, so the screenplay wasn't really Sidney Lumet, and the two leads were in bad need of an acting class, but you can't say this movie wasn't entertaining. It was campy! Everyone in the cast talked like they were reading off a chalkboard somewhere, making it hilarious. What's more (or to add good expectations for the male side) you get a full glimpse of Cindy Crawford's bare breasts and the millionth Baldwin brother to take a shot at acting. (And without a surprise, this shot proved blank.) Don't take this as something serious; look at it as the "Plan 9 Of Outer Space" for Hollywood action movies. If you have to poke fun an it, you could, but take the whole thing like a grain of salt.
Invite some friends over, leave your brain at the door, get a few beers and Chinese take-out and prepare yourself for a blast!
