Trixie, a one-of-a-kind, blue-collar gumshoe and onetime security guard tangles with a host of shady characters, including a promiscuous senator and another ladies' man, at a small lakefront casino as she tracks down a dissolute killer.
Boring and predictable script; not funny.
Despite a star cast (Nick Nolte, Emily Watson), Rudolph's comedy-mystery is a minor, trivial film that tries to be whimsical but lacks humor or fresh angle on the Hollywood's cherished genres of noir and screwball.
Los Angeles Times
A handsome, well-designed film typical of Rudolph.
