Back in the late 80's and early 90's a few Japanese producers were keen to break into mainstream hollywood. Sadly, the films the Japanese got involved with were things like Last Action Hero, Solar Crisis and this.....Ruby Cairo. Too bad they lost their shirts.

Ruby Cairo, however, deserves a lot more praise than the aforementioned.

Andie MacDowell stars as a housewife with three kids living out in suburbia near the airport. Her seemingly no good husband,played by Viggo Mortenson in one of his very early roles, runs his own airplane salvage company and spends months away from home.

When her husband burns up in a crash in Mexico his remains are delivered to MacDowell and she goes across the border to bury him.

Upon her arrival she finds that her husband had a secret office, some very unsavory business partners and a set of baseball cards that lead his distraught wife all over the world to try and find out just what her husband was up to. Along the way she runs into Liam Neeson who may or may not be connected to her dead husbands evil deeds.

The movie is named Ruby Cairo in various other parts of the world but was labled Deception in the U.S. I have no idea if it every made it to the theaters in America but it had quite a good run on cable tv for a number of years which made it somewhat of a minor cult movie.

The movie itself is not an award winner but there is something about the story that keeps the viewer entertained. Andie Macdowell does a good job playing the naieve housewife who slowly realizes she has been made a fool of. Mortenson's part is sadly way to short and perhaps the back story of his wheeling and dealing might have enhanced the film a bit.

This is the edited edition of Ruby Cairo, which was released in the U.S. Andy McDowell objected to the nudity in the original. "Deceptions" is the edited version. Ruby Cairo is only available overseas.
I give it 2 stars because it is not the original.

"Deception" is the edited version of "Ruby Cairo," which is not a great movie but which is better than this one. It isn't just the sex scene that was edited out, but a total of about 20 minutes. The movie makes more sense in the RC version, and the sex scene, though dark and in Andie's case a bit airbrushed, is worth seeing, especially if you are a Viggo Mortensen fan. I don't think it was the nudity Andie objected to, though, or not entirely. The scene ends in an act of contempt that would sting any woman. It effectively lets you know what the man's character is really thinking, but it's brutal in a subtle way. There is also, of course, the (apparent) age difference between the two characters. He looks about 10 years younger than she does, even with a beard.

8 of 11 people found the following review helpful By EA Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on January 4, 2000
Format: DVD
Some movies don't make sense.

Exhibit A: "Deception," a thriller full of money, deception and baseball cards, which started off on a promising note, but rapidly became too absurd to really deal with. The only saving grace is Liam Neeson, but even his charm cannot keep "Deception" honest.

Young mother Bessie Faro (Andie MacDowell) is shattered when she learns that her husband Johnny (Viggo Mortensen) was in a fatal plane crash. Even worse, their joint plane company is about bankrupt. But when she goes to Mexico to identify the body, she finds that her husband has been making massive deposits in banks all over the world. The key to finding them: Johnny's baseball cards.

At first, Bessie is overjoyed at picking up the vast sums of money, since she can easily support herself and her young children with it for many years. But then she learns that the accounts are being closed -- is her husband still alive? The search brings her on a parallel path to a kindly humanitarian, Dr. Lamb (Liam Neeson).... and to the ugly truth about where her husband got all that money.

Buried inside "Deception" is a pair of movies. Not one, but two. One is about a rather dim housewife discovering her husband's Big Secret. The other is about gunrunners, embezzlement and murder. Unfortunately, this movie is mashed together into a logic-free, tedious mess.

Despite the international travels, there isn't much scenery in this movie, except some dusty streets and one pretty shot of Lamb and Bessie smooching atop the pyramid (are people allowed to climb those anymore?). Even more time is devoted to the baseball card trick, which seems too weird to be possible, and then to the even more improbable gunrunning scenario.

Format: VHS Tape
For those of you looking for "the breakout" role for any of the actors involved in this film, you will be dissappointed. Liam Neeson and Viggo Mortensen do try to make the most of the material they are given. The movie starts like a "Lifetime network" advertisement as yet another gullible woman finds out that the love of her life has staged his own death and set up a crazy trail of bank accounts all over the world revealed by her knowledge of his gambling habits and a series of baseball cards she finds. When she quite literally follows an ink trail to Cairo, the movie does finally take on a little more dimension, and we finally get to see Viggo in something other than flashbacks, but by then its just about over. I'd say this is a good popcorn flick for a lazy Saturday afternoon.
