Storyline
Bridget Gregory has a lot going for her: she's beautiful, she's intelligent, she's married to a doctor. But all of this isn't enough, as her husband Clay finds out. After she persuaded him to sell medicinal cocaine to some drugdealers, she takes off with the money, almost a million dollars, and goes undercover in a mid-American smalltown. Because Clay has to pay off a loan shark who'll otherwise damage him severely, he keeps sending detectives after her, trying to retrieve the money. When Bridget meets Mike Swale, a naive local who is blinded by her beauty and directness, she devises an elaborate, almost diabolical scheme to get rid of Clay once and for all.

User Review

Classic mystery thriller

Rating: 10/10

One of my favorite films. Linda Fiorentino is wonderful as the evil
Bridgit. Your mouth keeps dropping open as you say "She can't be about to
do that," and then she does. When I first saw the film in a packed
theater
the audience was audibly gasping at some of the plot twists. Do yourself
a
favor if you're seeing it for the first time, go in knowing nothing at all
about the story. Part of the fun is the rollar coaster ride of what
happens
next. Highly recommended!
