Amber Smith explodes on the scene and seduces law student. After a wild one night stand, his roommate cautions him to be careful because striper girl Smith may have other motives. After the three are grown up and out of law school, her husband is murdered. She goes back to former boyfriend, now top lawyer, for help. The film goes down hill from here when the three friends are supposedly older. Their previously fair acting starts becomes terrible. The lawyer guy, former geek law student, becomes a cool arrogant pin head who takes his sunglasses off in this fonny 'i'm cool air' about 100 times everytime he enters a room - pathetic! Come on, what happened here! Give me a break! And the police guy who helps him out also has this cocky sort of dumb attitude as if just given his lines a few minutes before shooting and 'why are you bothering me' attitude. And Amber, well she has two very brief topless shots and thats about it. The movie started off good but just went on a death spiral in to never land.
