Well I have got this one on right now and I have to say that I think it is actually a pretty funny flick. It stars Tom Selleck as a writer who gets involved with a woman who is suspected of murder. It kind of reminds me of a Blake Edwards film of the 80s. It also stars Paulina Poriskova, William Daniels, and James Farentino.
I am kind of surprised that I haven't seen Paulina in anything else, she did a pretty good job in this film. The only other thing that I even know of her is from being on the Sports Illustrated cover. I love all of the antics of the film that are carried off by Tom Selleck.
My favorite part of the movie is when all of the people eat food that she made and then think that they have been poisoned because the cat winds up dead. Very well executed scene by all of those involved.
Does anyone else have a fondness for this forgotten flick?

I tried the other day, but then my PC decided to have a hissy fit and I had to go away for a little cry.....
I really like this movie - not least because Paulina is a really good looking female, but also because it shows Tom Selleck being a real wuss!

It was a highly entertaining romantic action-comedy directed by Bruce Beresford ( Puberty Blues etc.)
Tom Selleck was great and Paulina Porizkova ( Portfolio ) so cute. William Daniels was excellent as Selleck´s manager and had some of the best lines in the film. Liliana Komorowska was so beautiful as Laura, i wish she´d had a bigger role.
I loved that big country house Selleck had (This was shot in Baltimore, Maryland). Such a wonderful place!
Nice romance, stupid villains and some clever author/writer´s block jokes. Good stuff!
