| An inoffensive lark; nothing exciting or memorable about it...
Robert Benton wrote and directed this daffy comedy about a Texas manicurist in 1950s Austin who enlists the aid of her estranged husband to help her retrieve some sexy photographs she had taken by a unscrupulous shutterbug; swiping blueprints for a new highway instead, the bickering couple are chased by both the police and a crooked kingpin who's out for blood. Sassy talk and gumshun are the highlights of this pleasant whiff of an idea--sort of an old-fashioned throwback to the cinema's second-feature--but it runs out of steam after an hour or so. Kim Basinger gets to show off her squirrelly side which is very appealing, and Jeff Bridges is a good match for her, but the ramifications of an early murder, the contents of the file, and the plot elements with the gun-toting villains, Bridges' new girlfriend, and Basinger's secret "condition" are not immediately captivating. Didn't Benton realize that the central relationship alone was more engaging than the chases and the overlong shoot-out finale in a junkyard? He was trying for a breezy screwball effect, but this approach is only successful in setting up the story. The rest is irrelevant. ** from ****
