| Scott Cohen, Lou Diamond Phillips and Rachel Ticotin: Great!
Why have I never heard of this movie before? It was really good! Scott Cohen's performance as a relatively novice police officer who was competitive with and conflicted by his shady businessman brother (Lou Diamond Phillips)was really superb. And Scott looked great with long hair. Rachel Ticotin was perhaps underused here in her role as a journalist. Her character didn't have the breadth and complexity that Rachel is able to play. Rita Moreno was almost invisible as the mother, but she played it super well in the few scenes she did have. Judge Reinhold's performance was a little too overtly psycho than I thought was necessary for his bad cop role: but, at least it was believable he would do the things he did in this film. There were some good laughs, and one shockingly irreverent scene, too. It's most definitely worth a look.
