Beautiful Kathleen Turner (Body Heat, Romancing the Stone) stars as V.I. Warshawski, a tough-talking, sexy Chicago private eye who knows how to use her two most lethal weapons - her powerful charm and curvy legs. After she's hired by Kat (Angela Goethals, Home Alone), the 13-year-old daughter of a murdered ex-hockey star, V.I. gets caught up in an action-packed thriller involving money, murder and the Windy City's most notorious hoods! This time it's going to take everything she's got to track down and out-fox the key suspects. Earning high praise for her electrifying performance, Kathleen Turner is simply irresistible as the smart and sexy detective you'll find yourself cheering for. The strong supporting cast includes Jay O. Sanders (The Day After Tomorrow), Charles Durning (True Confessions), Wayne Knight (TV's Seinfeld) and Stephen Root (Office Space). Directed by Jeff Kanew (Tough Guys, Revenge of the Nerds).

I can't speak for DVDs, but my BluRay version had a fine picture; sound too.
I've just talked myself into ordering a flick of hers I'd missed. As most are, it's a 4-star+ title. (Oops! At $20.95, SWITCHING CHANNELS goes on my wish list. See? $20 for a 1988 Hollywood film? What's that say?)
Now about the quality of this Blu-ray disc. be warned it's atrocious thus the 1 star rating. Not for the movie since I just loved Kathleen Turner in this title. In my humble opnion she was at her sexiest and at her peak in looks. Its not a great movie but totally acceptable because of Kathleen's presence. The classic film goddess comes to mind. Any way I had the first standard dvd offered and decided to upgrade for a better picture to Blu-ray. Well it appears sharper but odd that the same white specs and garbage that littered the DVD version is very much apparent here,.. and even in the same places as that earlier version. I do know a little about compression and know that it is possible to re-process the same mpeg2 files used for the first DVD release to a larger different compression scheme such as the 1080p format. The quality would not improve but you can do it. Not saying they did that but it sure appears that way from the print used here. Its identical and since it is highly unlikely for these white specs to repeat themselves exactly where they appeared before on the first issue of the standard DVD. Very sad they didn't use a much better print this time around or just use a print period intead of re-processing the earlier files. Again just my observation here on this Blu-ray treatment of this title. In my opinion not worth upgrading to, since the overall appearance of this movie will just leave you highly disappointed in how some of these companies view the buying public.
