".....at the beginning of the film the death of some prominent business people made to look accidental gives the viewer the feel that the Berkeley character--young, on the move, up and rising PR star for a rental car company--is going to be a cutthroat aggressive bee-actch. What happens? She falls for a skuzzo who wasn't really invited to the office take over party and GOES WITH him to his other mistress's house. (WHAT!?!) The mistress catches them in her bed about to do the do and the mistress attacks them, causing Berkeley to ka-bong her on the head with the Maltese Falcon like sculpture, thus killing her. The skuzzo then goes on the shakedown because the murdered mistress is wife to the president of a company the rental car business is getting ready to merge with...which normally would make a mildly entertaining TV Movie of the Week, but Berkeley sleepwalks through half the movie and oogles like a frightened deer caught in headlights through the other half of the movie. See only if you're a true Berkeley fan. At least Showgirls was knowingly unserious and played for camp value..."
