The title is no accident. This sassy romantic comedy is a rather blatant attempt to rebuild the Moonlighting model.

This time Bill Campbell (The Rocketeer) is the bushytailed, smart-mouthed private detective, and Ally Walker (Singles) is his more sophisticated female partner. Sparks fly; repartee is exchanged.

The lead pair play well off each other, the writing has moments of wit and the South Beach selling radiates a tropical sheen. But the casework needs beefing up.
