A Sort of Mystery
The plot -- Mimi Rogers is a lady cop named "Michael." She drinks with the guys, but has no love life to speak of. She is a member of a video dating service, but can't make up her mind whether or not to call anyone for a date.
Jack Packard (John Shea), claiming to be an engineer named "Tim Smith," shows up at her apartment late at night, says he's from the dating service and sweet-talks her into dinner and sex.
She finds out that "Tim" is really "Jack," a married rich guy, and tells him to leave her alone.
From this point on, you have to wonder what this women is using for a brain. For starters, she gets reinvolved with Jack, and from that point on things get complicated, in a soap-opera sense.
Shea's performance is unremarkable, which is too bad, but the movie is watchable if you have nothing better to do.
Things pick up somewhat during the final third of the film, so hang in there if you want to see how it all comes out.
