Revenge

Kevin Costner is a flyboy who wants to live the good life after retiring. He visits his old friend portrayed by Anthony Quinn who happens to have a younger photogenic wife(Madeline Stowe) who is unhappy.



Things go from bad to worse rather quickly for this unlikely triangle after some tennis, murder and lemonade making.  I can't do justice to this tawdry tale of lust gone haywire. I decided to watch it after it was included in the book Bad Movies We Love. It is a bad movie and worth watching if you like bad dialogue , faux Peter Gabriel music , nude Madeline Stowe , Miguel Ferrer and a bunch of stereotypes trotted out to further a ridiculous story. It was engaging but unintentionally funny. Currently on Netflix streaming. C-
