      victor o I came to watch this movie for Bo Derek and to be fair I'm not her biggest fan. So even I got to admit this was worth watching. Bo Derek plays Christina, a gorgeous trophy spouse of a prominent businessman who claims to have been raped with evidence indicating it was her spouse's yacht captain having killed him. A veteran lawyer attends to the captain as he believes in his innocence and for the woman, he believes to be responsible as they race against time to prove him innocent. This wasn't the best movie, but it had its moments, some decent acting from Robert Mitchum whom I'm surprised could still work a good performance. Jeff Fahey plays the sucker well as Bo Derek does a good job as a femme fatale. Not the most satisfactory of endings but no story is perfect. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member After the success of BASIC INSTINCT erotic-thrillers were turning up every few weeks. They ranged from some good knock-offs to downright horrid pieces of trash. This one here is a pretty bad movie but there are enough campy moments and the cast is attractive enough to make it hard to turn off. Captain Jack Lynch (Jeff Fahey) washes on shore saying that his boss (Steven Bauer) fell overboard during a storm. The boss has a wife (Bo Derek) who claims that Jack shot her husband and then raped her but Jack claims he's innocent and had been carrying on an affair with the wife. If you're looking for an actual plot your not going to find much of one here as there are enough plot holes here that one will question if a few first-graders didn't right this thing. As is to be expected, Derek plays the beautiful blonde who might not be a very good person as she is constantly sleeping with various men and she might have a few reasons as to why she'd want to see her husband dead. It will come as no shock that Derek doesn't give that much of a performance but she certainly looks extremely good here at the age of 37. She's clearly not here for her acting but for her sex appeal and she has quite a bit of that. She has quite a few nude scenes and there's no denying that she looks wonderful and this is the main reason people are going to be checking this out and have been checking it out since it's constant plays on Cinemax throughout the late-night hours. Fahey has always been a favorite of mine and his presence here gave the film some added value even though he's not overly good either. The big shock is that Robert Mitchum plays his lawyer here and actually gets a lot of screen time. This here certainly isn't a classic performance but it was fun seeing him in this type of role and he clearly gives the best performance of the bunch. It's pretty hard to take the film serious because there are just so many bad things. The direction is pretty poor, the music is horrid and even the editing looks very cheap. The dialogue is extremely bad and the courtroom scenes are rather embarrassing. With that said, with Derek looking as great as she does and the other campy values, if you're a fan of bad movies then this one here is worth watching. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Audience Member A rather humdrum thriller. Bo Derek is quite hot here though.
