Barkin makes the silliness with which her character behaves as credible as is probably possible.

Oooowee, here is one scorchingly sexy movie.

[The film is] directed by offbeat filmmaker Jim McBride, who gives the action a lot of energy but falls back too often on the usual sex-and-violence formulas.

[McBride] gets tense, sexy performances from Dennis Quaid and Ellen Barkin and makes the most of his New Orleans locations.

There's plenty of southern comfort in this entertaining thriller. Terrific performances from Quaid and Barkin make this into an overlooked gem of 1980s Hollywood.

Much better than the average cop movie: the script bristles with wittily tough talk, while fast-pattering Quaid works up a nice double act romance-feud with Barkin (his cheeky grin is well-matched with her lopsided smile).

Colorful Cajun noir, spicy, romantic, efficient.
October 5, 2011
A movie that manages to be atmospherically rich while also satisfying the slash-crash imperatives of the police-action genre.

There is a gusto to the movie and a rush of incidental delights. Highly enjoyable.
