When Peter (Mickey Rourke) shows Jack (Brad Renfro) the child in the van, you can easily see a crew member through the front windshield looking in. He tries to get out of the way, but much too late. See more »
[regarding a little mark that appeared on her arm]
Look, I have no idea what this is. And another one on my foot.
[proffers slinky foot for him to inspect]
Yeah, I don't know what it is either. Look, Christie, tell me something.
What do you think about Martin?
He's cool. He's hot.
Yeah, hot. Hmm. Well... I know that. But... I'm just not sure that I'm at the same place as you are. You know, with everything that's... that's been going on with him. Forget it. Sorry I brought it up.

The informers is not a bad movie, but it is definitely not a movie you would like to see twice. Various stories are told and lives are exposed in this film but nothing shown really gets to the viewer. It's main aim is to show the very essence of some of the luxurious lives of California big shots at the end of the 80s.
While intensive drug abuse, cheap rock n' roll and sex is going on the director shows confrontational situations within families, adolescents that have everything and nothing at the same time and Micky Roorke, that was probably in this film as a source of information about the 80s cocaine as the new trend and career downfall. No complains with K. Basinger and Billy Bob though there is no mayor performance in the cast. Script could have been much better and it's far from original.
There is literally no need for anyone to watch this film unless you want to see the dark side of fame and Hollywood which is definitely a cliché.
