We gave it a B

Don Johnson gives a flamboyant and highly entertaining performance as David Greenhill, a grinning gigolo hustler who revels in his power over women. David has been accused of murdering his wife, who fell to her death from their apartment window. Slithering into the office of Jennifer Haines (Rebecca De Mornay), an attractive criminal attorney, he reacts to the accusation as blithely as Claus von Bulow. This agreeably trashy courtroom thriller has its share of jerry-built contrivances, but it’s carried along by the hostile erotic charge that passes between Johnson and De Mornay.
