If this movie was a headline it'd be a tabloid-style Sex Scandal Shock!.

Marking Bob Evans' return to 'form' after his disaster plagued previous decade and from the pen of Hollywood sleaze maestro Joe Esterhas, it's a melting pot of a good hearted detective (Caruso), a prostitution ring among high-level bureaucrats, some bodacious babes, murder, blackmail and references to anal sex thrown in for good measure.

Like a straight to video soft porn thriller, only with a bigger budget, better execution, and bigger names.

George Clooney followed in David Caruso's footsteps by leaving a hit TV show to pursue career as a Hollywood leading man and had much more luck at it - Caruso was absolutely cursed with one turkey after another - this being one of them.
