Has everything but entertainment.
This over-blown, over-heated Hollywood S & M mystery has everything but entertainment value. Oh yes, there's plenty of wild and crazy(but not particularly titillating) sex, typical of these mindless BASIC INSTINCT "inspired" porn-thrillers, and there are even a few kinky/gory murders thrown it. There just isn't anything that even remotely resembles a good movie. The film casts Bruce Willis as a psychiatrist(Please!) who becomes traumatized after a very disturbed patient commits suicide before his very eyes. He then suffers another blow(no pun intended) when his doctor-friend(Scott Bakula) is brutally murdered. Willis is then called in to take over Bakula's creepy group, and the mysterious murders continue. Meanwhile, Bruce gets involved with an attractive, but strange "fender-bender"(Jane March) who has some bizarre connection to the unfortunate chain of events in his life. Bruce is his inimitable DIE HARD-self, and Jane March is pretty in a girlish sort-of-way, but their sex scenes are very difficult to watch because Willis, while undeniably a good-looking guy, still looks every bit of his forty years, while his partner looks all of fourteen, effectively killing any sex appeal this film was suppose to have. But, of course, that is the very least of the movie's problems. Most of the problems can be traced back to the script, a ridiculous combination of BASIC INSTINCT/FATAL ATTRACTION/PSYCHO-type cliches. If you are wondering what the most suspenseful parts of the movie are, there aren't any. The true horror is in the fact that this ugly little number ever got made. This is the price we pay for going to see movies like BASIC INSTINCT. Believe it or not, this movie was directed by Richard Rush, the same guy who gave us the brilliant THE STUNT MAN.

Trivia

For the first time in this film, Director Richard Rush used stunt people. It was also vital for the finale of the film where Bruce Willis saves Jane March on the platform which Rush wanted all filmed in one take and not edited from several takes.


Quotes

Hector Martinez: If you don't tell 'em, I'll have to tell 'em. Am I the person to break the news to these people? 'Listen up you fuckin' daffodils. Your shrink is dead. Which means that all the time, effort and love you put in this relationship is wasted. You're ...


Goofs

Bill is talking to the group and while making himself a drink, the cabinet above the counter is open/closed between shots.


Crazy Credits

After the credits roll, Hector can be heard calling for help because he is still hanging on the wall.


Alternate Versions

The French and Italian version show an extra shot (absent in the US version) of Willis diving into the pool before kissing his way up March's naked body. The kissing scene that preceded Willis and March plunging into the pool is slightly different for the US version where Willis says "I miss you" with March replying" This time, you won't miss.", followed by the plunging during which March's red dress is still intact. In the European version, he said he could recommend someone (i.e a shrink) and she said why not Willis. A top-angled view shot then shows March removes her red dress herself before diving into the pool when she pulls the shorts off Willis so they can fondle each other completely nude.
