Kathleen Turner plays no-nonsense femme fatale VI Warshawski, a private detective who lives in Chicago. She's tough and knows how to handle men, who often don't take her seriously, why she doesn't use her name - she refers to herself as VI.
When she meets an interesting hockey player - Bernard 'Boom-Boom' Grafalk (Stephen Meadows) things get very complicated for Vic, as she has to look after his daughter - Kat, who's a handful. When Kat and Vic find out that Boom-Boom is dead, they form a tough private detective team and crack the mystery.
This is a good movie - it's not groundbreaking but Kathleen Turner really does put out a good performance, plus Vic is a great character, a powerful woman with a soft side when needed, and girly characteristics (loves clothes and shoes). Angela Goethals was also great in this, as the cheeky yet lovable Kat, who really just wants the best for everyone.
Even though this is a 15, I think it makes a great family movie, it's funny, and shows that when people work together they can conquer the worst moments. It's got some violence and sexual content, but they're not too bad, though wouldn't show it to anyone who's under 13.
This is a great film and worth getting on DVD - though the extras are not that good, the price this is sold at makes it worth it's time.
