The lovely Sharon Stone (Catherine) plays the girlfriend of a murdered rock star. The film is mainly gathering evidence and we flip back and forth between thinking Catherine is responsible. It's got at least one really cool murder in it, the infamous spreading the legs in court scene and well it's basically decent. It's just not action packed, scary, bloody, or frightening in the slightest. More of a court case and a personality case and some general erotisism than anything, but still a must see once.
