Roy Guyton: I had a very smart professor back at State. He did a whole lecture once on the dangers of relationships in the workplace.
Rica Martin: What do you think I'm proposing here, picnic baskets in a meadow? I'm talking about you and me bent over the Xerox machine when no one's looking.
Roy Guyton: Oh. He didn't cover that.

One of the best movies you've never heard of
6 January 1999 | by Miller13See all my reviews

This has great elements of suspense, drama, law, sex and comedy and some great actors in Garner and Gershon. The others make it a great cast and a great movie that you'll remember. It's just a great one.
