After a four year absence, one time detective Nick Charles returns to New York with his new wife Nora and their dog, Asta. Nick re-connects with many of his old cronies, several of whom are eccentric characters, to say the least. He's also approached by Dorothy Wynant whose inventor father Clyde Wynant is suspected of murdering her step-mother. Her father had left on a planned trip some months before and she has had no contact with him. Nick isn't all that keen on resuming his former profession but egged-on by wife Nora, who thinks this all very exciting, he agrees to help out. He solves the case, announcing the identity of the killer at a dinner party for all of the suspects.
Inspired from family life and muder cases, it's the story of Nick and Nora Charles, a former detective and his rich, playful wife. They investigate a murder case mostly for the fun of it. Let's follow this movie to discover by yourself! Wish you fun! . You can read more in Google, Youtube, Wiki
Justin M (au) wrote: Tim Ritter's 16MM debut (shot in North Palm Beach, Florida) is a sloppy mess, but it's a low-budget attention-getter nonetheless. Mike Strauber (John Brace) is a successful married man who once suffered from a nervous breakdown, and now is going insane after discovering his sexy wife (Mary Fanaro) has been cheating on him. Mike leaves the house, picks up a busty redheaded hitchhiker (Kerry Ellen Walker) and heads to a campground for the night, where the two play a twisted version of Truth or Dare by campfire. He dares her to pull out her eye with a corkscrew...and she does!! Then she makes him cut off his finger, slash open his chest and rip out his tongue before disappearing.He's found and rushed off to "Sunnyville Mental Institution" where he is eventually released due to "overcrowding". He heads back home to kill his ex-wife, but is captured again and rushed back to SMI where gory Truth or Dare games are played with other patients. All of the TorD game participants turn out to be delusions of Mike's deranged mind, an odd metaphor for insanity in general, I guess, and a means for lots of self-mutilation.By the films end a head is blown off with a grenade, arms and legs are hacked off, a face is slashed up, a baby in a stroller is run over, a little kid is chewed up in a drive-by chainsawing, an old woman is clubbed on the head, Mike takes a semi-automatic rifle to three unlucky people waiting at a bus stop and much more. It's really just a bunch of violent nonsense, but it's pretty entertaining and the gore FX are fine.Followed by several direct-to-video sequels starting with WICKED GAMES (1993). Also available is (was?) TRUTH OR DARE?-THE RETROSPECT TAPE, hosted by the director.

Jeff Bridges is one of the best actors in the business and his performance definitely elevates the proceedings to a whole new level as I feel it would not have had the same impact if some subpar actor did the job. The story isn't particularly new but I really liked it here and everything else about it, the acting is amazing, the directing is great and the cinematography was excellent. There are many actors of Bridges' calibre that get an Oscar for a film that usually isn't considered the actors greatest work and its thought of as a 'Legacy Oscar' Scent of a Woman and The Fugitive come to mind but those two actors did deserve them but for this movie? Jeff Bridges' performance really was excellent and he really transformed himself into the character and it helps he sang his own music too, which by the way, the soundtrack is out of this world and it is now one of my favorites much like the movie. Everything is this movie is done right, the romance, the music, the acting, the heartbreak. Everything.

Private U (ru) wrote: I thought I would be watching a golf movie but that was not the case. A movie about a college student coming home for the summer break with his best friend who turns out to be gay. In the end the gay friend has a romantic encounter with one of the family members and all hell breaks loose. The story starts off boring but gets interesting as the family tries to deal with the affects of the gay love affair. The movie could have been better if the director added some decent music and hired some better actors. Dan Payne did not seem to fit his role, he seemed too young to be the father in this film. I wouldn't recommend this film unless you have nothing better to do for the summer.

Dimitris S (es) wrote: A film auteur,literally and profoundly.Anything that goes against him,will probably go against the post-modern cinematic language.The debut feature shows promise and mystery,taunting the wealth of the era and feeling sympathetic to low-life characters,including the detective.Action is replaced by spiritual hesitation,a well-maintained picture,too accessible for an Antonioni film.
