Low-rent Reno PI Jack Andrews (Val Kilmer) thought the bills would be covered when gorgeous Fay Forrester (Joanne Whalley-Kilmer) offered him 10 grand to set her up with a cover identity. Not only does she bolt without paying, he's now stuck having to deal with the cops, the Mob, and her angry─and crazy─ex (Michael Madsen). Slyly done throwback noir, John Dahl's directing debut, also stars Jon Gries, Bibi Besch. 95 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital stereo.
