Dennis Quaid, Ellen Barkin, Ned Beatty. A New Orleans homicide detective and a beautiful D.A. fall in love while investigating a gangland murder in this spicy, Cajun-flavored romantic thriller. 1987/color/101 min/R/widescreen.
An atmospheric and sexy crime caper, this stars Dennis Quaid as a New Orleans police detective. He’s a smooth talker who butts heads with the new assistant district attorney, Ellen Barkin. She’s rigid and plays by the rules; he is mildly corrupt. They soon find themselves romantically entwined, and a bit chagrined.
Director Jim McBride (Great Balls of Fire) was in top form with this 1987 sizzler. You may not remember the particulars of the plot, which concerns supposed gang killings and police corruption, because it is the romance that has staying power. Blame this on Quaid and Barkin, who send off enough sparks to light up Bourbon Street. They are not only sexy together, but endearing, which makes you want to like them as much as they like each other. –Rochelle O’Gorman
