Long before she was A list with Sex in the City, Sarah Jessica Parker was second fiddle/female love interest to Bruce Willis in this clunky but passable action thriller and the butt of the film's most unintentionally funny line.

After finally giving in to their mutual desire, Bruce's pillow talk concerns the case that's getting more personal and the fact that the women around him that he cares about keep dying, with nary a care for the woman he newly cares about standing right there.

He's a river-based cop so there's lots of water-based action, and the plot concerns the family of cops he hails from, with Uncles, his father and cousins embroiled in a serial killer case when he comes to believe the perpetrator himself is a cop.

Lots of running, shouting and mediocre detective work ensues to create a momentarily exciting but forgettable movie.
