An under rated classic
on 22 March 2004
Any film featuring Michelle Pfieffer is worth watching, throw in a cast including Mel Gibson, Kurt Russell and Raul Julia and you've got some idea of how good this film is.
The complex love triangle between Pfieffer, Gibson and Russell is further complicated by the fact that Gibson and Russell are long time best friends, one is a drug dealer and the other a narcotics officer. Sure, it may be a little far fetched but it makes for good viewing.
Fans of Michelle Pfieffer will enjoy the steamy love scene with Mel Gibson whilst anyone who enjoys good music will find the soundtrack interesting. There is a wonderful piece of music written by Dave Grusin and featuring David Sanbourn on the saxaphone, a great duet from Nancy Wilson (Heart) and Robin Zander (Cheap Trick) and some other great tunes from bands such as Duran Duran, Crowded House and Ziggy Marley.
A good film for summer time.
