Terry Brogan/ Jeff Bridges,is an aging football player in L.A., that was cut early in the season. He needs money, so he takes a job from a shady friend of his, Jake Wise/ James Woods, to track down Wise's girlfriend, Jessie/Rachel Ward, who's somewhere in Mexico. Of course they fall in love or we wouldn't have much of a movie if he just went down to Cozumel and got the girl.
Thank goodness for the 80's love songs.
Rachel Ward is gorgeous. James Woods does a great bad guy and Jeff Bridges is looking pretty good too. The theme song is one of Phil Collin's best. This couple is so "hot" that they will make you forget that being in sticky heat, covered in sand, is really not that sexy.
