Aside from Three Men & A Baby, Tom Selleck's film career never really took off following his breakthrough performance on the TV show Magnum P.I., perhaps it didn't help when he starred in films like this.
He plays a thriller writer who provides a false alibi to a beautiful woman accused of murder and finds himself doubting his actions.
It's not a terrible film, but is incredibly miscast, especially with the female lead who doesn't provide Selleck with any great dialogue, conflict or even chemistry between the two characters which the story desperately needed.
