Entertainment Reviews:

New York Times - 08/07/1987
"...Very amiable....All of the performances are excellent, especially those of [Basinger and Bridges]..."
Los Angeles Times - 08/07/1987
"...It is a deeply felt tribute to Texas womanhood. And since Kim Basinger is Nadine, there's every reason in the world to feel deeply..."

Product Description:

Robert Benton's screwball comedy stars Kim Basinger and Jeff Bridges as Nadine and Vernon Hightower, a young couple on the verge of divorce. Nadine enlists the help of Vernon, now engaged to another woman, for her attempt to recover some compromising photos of herself from a sleazy photographer, Raymond Escobar (Jerry Stiller), who's making a deal to have her picture put on playing cards. But when they break into his office to steal the photos, they hear a commotion in the next room and accidentally grab the wrong envelope, which contains the proposed layout of a new highway, a potential gold mine for real estate developers. Shady real estate kingpin Buford Pope (Rip Torn) wants the plans back and will stop at nothing to get them. The couple is soon on the run not only from Buford but from cops who believe they've killed Escobar. With all of this enforced togetherness, the couple has a chance to get reacquainted. Basinger and Bridges have wonderful chemistry, and Torn is hilarious in his patented sleazeball turn. Benton, best known for deeply affecting, Academy Award-winning melodramas such as KRAMER VS. KRAMER and PLACES IN THE HEART, approaches the material with the relaxed glee of a hardworking graduate student on spring break, and the resulting film is a lighthearted, thoroughly enjoyable farce.

Plot Synopsis:

Vernon and Nadine Hightower are a couple headed for a divorce, but when Nadine becomes a suspect in the murder of a photographer, the two decide to team up and uncover the real killer--before he gets to Nadine.
