Dated but what a great representation of the good and bad elements of New Orleans. Dennis Quaid, Ellen Barkin and others shine in this. A must watch!

Very good movie! It keeps you guessing while you try to figure out who the bad cops are. The chemistry between Quaid and Barkin works well. It's well acted and well scripted.

This Cajun cop thriller stars Dennis Quaid as a Cajun cop in New Orleans who is being investigated by the District Attorney's office for suspected corruption and murder charges. They send in sexy assistant D.A. Ellen Barkin to check him out. But, she finds herself falling for his Cajun charms. Will they end up together, or is it all just a scam by a slick crook to cover his trail? This is a great drama/police thriller with the great New Orleans backdrop only adding fuel to an already erotically-charged fire. Quaid and Barkin have great chemistry and Barkin is at her smoking-hot best in this movie. So, if you're into New Orleans-themed movies or just want to check out the steamy, ultra-sexy Ellen Barkin, check this one out!
