"...[A] juicy film noir....Ms. Shue hams it fabulously, smirking and shimmying and casting tough come-hither looks as scorching as hot coals..."

"...Distinguished by fine performances from Harrelson and Shue who remain engaging throughout..."

"...Shue and Sevigny are an enticing pair of femme fatales, while Harrelson makes an appealing sap..."
Upon returning to his fetid Florida hometown after a bum-rap prison stint, grizzled and jaded ex-muckraker Harry Barber gets a curious proposal from the bored young wife of a decrepit millionaire: kidnap her stepdaughter and split the hefty ransom. But before you can say "plan gone awry," the plan's gone awry--and Harry's the convenient fall guy. Revisionist noir, based on "Just Another Sucker" by James Hadley Chase.
