Tagline: No one's ever been so good at being so bad.

Plot: Director Roland Joffé's neo-noir stars Patricia Arquette as Sandra Dunmore, a Los Angeles femme fatale who enjoys strolling around town singing tunes from THE SOUND OF MUSIC while coordinating real estate deals and listening to Tony Robbins inspirational tapes. She also takes pleasure in cheating on her husband, Jake (Dermot Mulroney), with his own brother, Ben (Don Johnson). Jake is a brilliant but drunk copywriter at an advertising agency where Ben is a clean-cut, high-powered executive. When a double indemnity insurance policy is taken out for Jake, Sandra begins to concoct a murderous and greedy plot. However, things get out of hand in this bizarre murder mystery, and soon Ben has left his lover for his mousy secretary (Mary-Louise Parker) while a pair of bumbling police officers is hot on Sandra's tail--wisecracking Rita Pompano (Ellen DeGeneres) and her naive, devout Mormon partner, Rollins (Ray McKinnon), are determined to get to the bottom of Sandra's devilish plans. The dry, cynical remarks of DeGeneres sparkle with rauchy wit and deadpan humor while Arquette shines in a kittenish performance that harkens back to the precocious divas of Hollywood's golden era.
