Chicago Reader by

Retained my interest and sympathy -- at least until the nonsensical ending,


L.A. Weekly by Chuck Wilson

The director belabors every moment, forgetting that pulp tales need to be told quickly, lest the viewer have time to second-guess.


Boston Globe by Jay Carr

Despite the heavy-handedness, isn't awful enough to be a hilarious howler. But neither is it good enough to become the tropical noir it could have been.


New York Post by Jonathan Foreman

Even the lovemaking scenes between two of Hollywood's most attractive stars -- often shot from above, like Cinemax soft porn -- are so unerotic, they make your skin crawl.


TV Guide Magazine by Maitland McDonagh

Ridiculous, yes, but in an eminently watchable way. Most of the plot twists work surprisingly well, and the frequently naked leads work up some genuine chemistry.


Chicago Sun-Times by Roger Ebert

The movie is not intended to be subtle. It is sweaty, candle-lit melodrama, joyously trashy, and its photography wallows in sumptuous decadence.
