Los Angeles Times - 10/30/1987
"...Here comes Whoopi! She's all flash and sass as an undercover cop in FATAL BEAUTY..."
A tough female plainclothes officer hunts down the murderous drug dealers who are spreading a stolen shipment of poisoned cocaine all over L.A.
Whoopi Goldberg plays fast-talkin' L.A. narc Rita Rizzoli, who goes undercover to blow the lid off a local cocaine ring. The twist is that the stuff being pushed by these small-timers is contaminated and lethally poisonous. Of course, this doesn't stop them from taking their shot at the big leagues by continuing to sell the tainted narcotics. Rita finds the time to romance a white bodyguard hired to kill her, then turns the bad guys into so much Swiss cheese.
