When she arrives at his building to interview the tenants about a murder that’s occurred on the premises, the janitor, having discovered the body, implies that he knows more than he’s saying in order to keep the newswoman interested. Although he reveals nothing more, she does become interested in him, and when her nefarious aristocratic boyfriend (Christopher Plummer) learns from the unwitting woman that there’s someone with knowledge of the murder, he’s more concerned about what Hurt might know than about her relationship with him. Meanwhile, his paranoid, loose cannon of a friend James Woods has managed to get himself incriminated, although he had no involvement in the case. Hurt and Weaver continue to investigate the murder together, and as they become more closely entwined, both of their lives are put in jeopardy.
Plot: Daryll Deever is a janitor in an office building in New York, and a big fan of TV news reporter, Tony Sokolow. When a rich man is murdered in Daryll’s building, Tony comes to cover the story and Daryll introduces himself to her. Thinking he may know something about the crime, Tony pursues him, and in order to keep seeing her, he pretends that he does. As the two of them play this game, the killers are watching, assuming that Daryll and Tony both know more about the crime than they do.

Barely Above Boring
With an all-star cast such as this movie had the failure is magnified. I don’t blame the actors, I blame the script.

Daryll Deever (William Hurt) is present when a murder happens in the building he works in. He doesn’t witness the murder but his friend, Aldo (James Woods), who has a motive, was present in the building at the time. Daryll uses his limited knowledge as an opportunity to get some one-on-one time with news reporter Antonia “Tony” Sokolow (Sigourney Weaver), whom he’s infatuated with. Tony, wanting to get the scoop, entertained the propositions from Daryll, believing he knew more than he did (which was evidence that she was bad at her job).

This is where the movie stumbled for me.

Tony ended up giving a Hollywood Hello (aka sex) to Daryll and it was very baffling, especially since she was in a committed relationship. Because I didn’t want to dismiss it as typical Hollywood sleaze thrown into the movie for kicks and grins, I was thinking there had to be an angle to it.

Was she unhappy with her current partner?

Was she showing her gratitude for him saving her life (he whisked her away from the Asian thugs that wanted to “ask her questions”)?

Was she plain promiscuous?

Was she so committed to her career that she would sleep with a stranger for a story?

I don’t know what the answer was and we never got one. In any case it was unscrupulous, but we were never given the impression that she was an unscrupulous person.

Her character seemed like a thinly veiled attempt to tie Daryll and her into a greater scandal-a scandal that was not that salacious. A news reporter sleeps with a stalker and an Israeli is killing in the name of rescuing his people. This movie was barley above boring.
