Reviews
Mine: Just terrific. I can watch it again and again, and have. The mood and feel great, nicely plotted. Makes me want to go to New Orleans. Very Sexy stuff. The soundtrack is great stuff.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Highly original crime yarn with steamy romance and unique New Orleans atmosphere. A stylish homicide detective (Quaid) runs afoul of the new, uptight assistant D. A. (Barkin) while investigating a local mob murder; soon they're romantically involved, even while they're at odds professionally. Sassy and sexy, with terrific Cajun music score. Written by Daniel Petrie, Jr. Later a cable TV series.
