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.

Did You Know?
Linda Fiorentino was widely lauded by critics for her performance in this movie but was denied an Academy Award nomination because it came out on TV before a theatrical release.
The ruffled look of Bridget's hair throughout her love scene with Mike is inconsistent.
Who's a girl gotta suck around here to get a drink?
Classic mystery thriller
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
the audience was audibly gasping at some of the plot twists. Do yourself
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
next. Highly recommended!
