Curious product of the 80s. Worth seeing.
24 September 2019 | by PeterBradfordSee all my reviews

Only in the 80s could you find George Segal and Shelly Hack disco dancing. The film is a fictionalized account of the factual search for the so-called "Goodbar" killer (so-called by Judith Rossner, despite the disclaimer). Jean De Baer plays Segal's wife, jealous of his relationship with their daughter. Barton Heyman is particularly strong in a supporting role.
