This movie is considered Burt Reynolds big comeback movie even though he had appeared in both The Player (1992) and Cop & ½ (1993). This is because of the attention the film got and the type of character he played. Also, his part in The Player (1992) was a cameo as part of an ensemble while Cop & ½ (1993) was essentially a children's film. See more »

This soft-core glossy skin flick (which is what it is, if you're honest about it) actually was better than I anticipated. the story was interesting all the way through, featured some great female bodies of course, but had decent acting and photography. The nudity involved breasts, nothing else and there was no sex. Demi Moore looked awesome at times; too tough-looking at other times.
Robert Patrick and Burt Reynolds played over-the-top characters who got a bit annoying after awhile. Reynolds is particularly sleazy and they use him in this film to denigrate elected officials and people who speak out for "family values." Hollywood loves to trash the latter, having no values of its own. They also trash Republicans and a group called "Young Christians," just more typical cheap shots of the Libeal film-making industry. They are unrelenting.
The only likable character in the movie is played by Armand Assante, although the film makes you root for Moore in her custody case.
I understand the book is much. Gosh, that's a surprise!
