Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times The movie is good to look at and painfully intense at times -- not so much when the plot is squeezing in, as when we're invited to identify with Russell when she's looking for trouble. Rated: 3/4 Jan 1, 2000 Full Review Entertainment Weekly Rated: F Apr 6, 1990 Full Review Rene Jordan El Nuevo Herald (Miami) The trouble Lottie gets in is not very plausible, but it remains entertaining until the end. [Full review in Spanish] Oct 28, 2022 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews ... was unimpressed except for the performance of Theresa Russell. Rated: C+ Mar 29, 2007 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com Rated: 2/5 Jul 24, 2005 Full Review Scott Weinberg eFilmCritic.com Instantly forgettable cop stuff.

Steve D Russell is really good the writing really bad. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 09/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Pretty o.k film. I liked the two lead actors. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Audience Member This movie was just awful Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member I don't think this film was meant to be a comedy but I never laughed so much during a Mystery film. However, Theresa is amazing! Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Audience Member I watched this movie only because because Theresa Russell is in it, but was pleasantly surprised that it's actually a decent police thriller. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Read all reviews
