"...A silliness that really is inspired..."
A spoof on the popular erotic thriller genre of films by director Reiner who brought us "Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid" and "The Jerk." Armand Assante assumes the role of the rugged antihero as he attempts to defend a sexy client who has been accused of murder.
Slapstick comedy spoof on the many mystery-suspense thrillers released in the last few years. The story itself centers on policeman-lawyer Ned Ravine and his arrest and defense of the same woman.
