The story in a nutshell is Guttenberg is sleeping with the bosses wife so when she sees an attempted murder she can't report it so Steve does instead. Since it is a man reporting they are more suspicious of him thinking either he's a voyuer or worse yet perhaps the perpetrator. Things get tense as he tries to prove his innocence and the real culprit is aware of the bosses wife and him. Is this a ripoff of the Hitchcock movie. A little, but the update and slight story change make it interesting and different enough that I found it entertaining.
By the way don't buy this DVD from a scalper for a ridiculous price. It is being redistributed in November 2006. I pre-ordered mine for $9.99.
The plot is one of those that motors along solely because nothing ever goes right. All of the twists are perfectly thought out and it makes for a delightfully messed up tale, but it all totally unrealistic because, come on, who is ever really that unlucky? Terry (Steve Guttenberg) is having an affair with his boss' blonde, accented wife when she spies an assault outside his apartment. The next day a different girl turns up dead a few blocks away but Sylvia (Isabelle Huppert) can't go to the police because that would expose their little tryst. So Terry, trying to be a hero, takes her place and reports the crime. Soon after he is convinced that he has found the real killer himself which leads to him chasing this man, Carl Henderson (Brad Greenquist), around town until his suspicions are verified.Read more ›
Comments: This is an OK movie to watch. There really isn't any gore. It is kinda suspenseful . . . a "thriller" type movie. It was endurable. It wasn't a dud I don't think. But it wasn't something I would buy on DVD to keep to watch over and over. Of course there is yet another plot involving someone having an affaire. But usually when people are doing things they shouldn't trouble ensues. It does here. There were a few twists that really were weak . . . the smoking gun in the court room was a joke. Most people who wear contact lenses also have glasses by their nightstand. That was not even hinted at as that would blow a hole through the plot so big you wouldn't be able to watch the movie on your 13" TV screen. And this must have been the era when the push for more gratuitous male nudity was on. I distinctly remember a lot of talk about that back in the 80s and 90s. Anyway women and men are naked often in this movie. All the main characters except the cuckold husband are naked at some point. The setting is amazingly Baltimore. Des[ite the violence in the movie you wouldn't recognize it. It looks like Manhattan or Paris in some scenes. There really isn't much to say . . . typical movie for that era . . . although the plot made more sense than most in that era.
Nothing amazing. Nothing horrible.
