Movie Info

Rita Rizzoli (Whoopi Goldberg) is a crusading narcotics cop assigned to track down the source of some killer crack cocaine in this pretentious and preachy anti-drug crime drama. Rita poses as a prostitute and is soon hot after two small-time hoods (Brad Dourif and Mike Jolly) who murder their way up the drug-dealing ladder in hopes of becoming kingpins. Cheech Marin and Catherine Blore provide interesting cameos in this feature that co-stars Ruben Blades and Sam Elliott. Contains stereotypical

The wisecracks and the swaggering are as unrelieved as the film's almost comically ecstatic gunplay. Someone must have figured audiences like things this way.

Goldberg's best work since The Color Purple.

Bloody, boring and pandering, is as poisonous as the drug trade it pretends to defame.

Tom Holland directed from a script and story credited to three individuals, anyone could have knocked this one out during coffee break.

Whoopi Goldberg is at her sassy, funny best in this upbeat 1987 cop caper, playing a Los Angeles detective who takes no nonsense and is ready for anything the badass guys can dish out

A lackluster Beverly Hills Cop rip-off.

So-so Whoopi comedy-thriller. There are worse things and she's made some of them.

Whoopi's a cool lady, but she's done a lot of stunningly awful movies. This is (easily) one of the worst.
