Through flashbacks, she reveals how her best friend and colleague Joyce Urbanski married the scum of the earth, nasty type, James Urbanski; how hard Joyce’s life with James was; and is why Joyce became a criminal. The smart detective finds some contradictions in her statement and presses Cynthia, trying to disclose the truth of the two murders.
Plot: A loathsome man ends up dead, but it’s not clear who’s to blame. If ever a person got what he deserved, it’s James Urbanksi, an abusive drunk who steals from his wife, Joyce, and promises her close friend Cynthia Kellogg that she’ll be the next target of his rage. At a group outing, James bleeds to death after someone cuts his throat. But because he’s such a terrible human being, police aren’t sure which of his acquaintances decided to kill him.

Under rated movie
I caught this on TV last night, and decided to give it a go because it started Demi Moore and Bruce Willis.
Cynthia (Moore) comes forward to talk to detective John (Harvey Keitel) about the murder of her best friend’s husband. The story is told as a series of flashbacks… James (Willis) was a bullying, physically abusive husband. His wife Joyce has, on a number of occasions, expressed her intention to kill him.
All the cast do a fine job, Glenne Headly slightly over does it with her accent, but it’s only a minor gripe. Willis is solid as the sleazy violent husband, Keitel does what is required of him and then, there is Moore. This was the second of three Box Office disappointments she made inbetween the success of Ghost and A Few Good Men.
It’s a shame this never found an audience as Moore puts in a really good performance
For me, Demi Moore remains one of the most talented and beautiful women in movies, and her sexiness is in rare supply. Any movie becomes promising just by having her name in it’s cast.
unreliable story teller
Cynthia Kellogg (Demi Moore) voluntarily comes in to give evidence about the case of James Urbanski (Bruce Willis) to police detectives John Woods (Harvey Keitel) and Linda Nealon. She describes the relationship between the brash James and his combative wife Joyce (Glenne Headly). Cynthia and Joyce are best friends working as hairdressers. The trio goes to a carnival and James ends up dead. Cynthia wants to call the cops but Joyce insists on covering it up. Cynthia tells her husband Artie (John Pankow).
The main problem for me is that I don’t believe Cynthia from the first moment she opens her mouth. With Bruce Willis playing James so broadly and the detectives challenging her story constantly, it adds up to an unreliable story teller. That happens a lot in good narratives if it’s handled right. By the thirty minutes mark, James is already dead and I’m ready for the next version of the story. That’s how this movie should have gone. The detectives can interview someone else and the characters within the story become different while adding to the story. Instead, the story keeps following Cynthia and I don’t believe anything on the screen.
