When her female lover, Ellen, leaves her, Connie conspires to get her back via a hired male gigolo. The plans is that he will appear to love Ellen and then leave her, hopefully sending her back to Connie's understanding arms. Is it necessary to divulge--yes, even in the '90s--that the girls' homosexual relationship ends with the expected Hollywood conclusion of heterosexual romance? Actor Joe Pantoliano, interestingly enough, shows up a few short years later in Bound, another tale involving lesbianism--but without the conventional ending.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Though timely in subject, this romantic comedy, with William Baldwin at the center of a triangle, is shallow and contrived, but there's still some pleasure to be had."
‑ Emanuel Levy, Variety
"A two-hour anticlimax, Three of Hearts manages to offend just about everyone -- women, men, lesbians, heterosexuals, prostitutes and, most of all, moviegoers."
‑ Joe Brown, Washington Post
"After a funny opening scene, the film never gets on track."
‑ Chris Hicks, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
"Shallow and virtually compromised out of existence."
‑ , Time Out
"An engaging romantic comedy."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"Innovative and interesting renderings of relationships are at a premium; it's obviously much easier to stick a few characters into stock situations and let the plot grind to a stopping point."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"[E]gregiously misunderstood."
‑ Jon Lap, Apollo Guide
