| Half-cocked Hitchcock, with intriguing ideas and frustrating lapses...
Steve Guttenberg, less offensive than usual, plays a man having an affair with a married woman; when his lover spies an attack on the street from his apartment window she feels the need to report it but doesn't want to give herself away, so he reports it to the police instead, using her description as his eyewitness account. Terrific B-movie premise has most of the markings of a good pulp novel; unfortunately, writer-director Curtis Hanson is too 'classy' for his own good, utilizing a bland, television-like style which hinders the scenario (it could use a bit more grit or sleaze, like a '40s detective magazine, and Hanson is too square). The script has many ingredients for a finely-wrought thriller, but even though the plot is absorbing, it gets more absurd as it progresses. Audiences who find themselves hooked right away probably won't mind much, and Elizabeth McGovern gives her best performance to date as the mugging victim. **1/2 from ****
