Quotes

Mickey Davis: [Mickey's voice as Scott Muller reads from Mickey's Diary] There are two me's really, Mickey and Michelle. Mickey is this mousy little house frau... Who hasn't taken a real chance in her whole life. Michelle, on the other hand, is up for anything. The only trouble with Michelle is that she lives and breathes only on these pages.

Romantic Thriller with an 80's flair
31 October 2003 | by briabbaSee all my reviews

What's not to love? Hot leading man, amazing San Francisco locale and a Faltermyer/Moroder soundtrack including the incomparable Melissa Manchester. The cast is great. Steven Bauer and Barbara Williams have great chemistry together. And the appearance of David Caruso early in his career is a bit of a surprise, too. A fun fantasy escape!
