Victoria Principal plays a tough district attorney (she's no Susan Dey; heck, she's no Andy Griffith). James Farentino plays a kinky judge with political ambitions. Farentino kills a prostitute and then frames her pimp for the murder. It just so happens that Principal gets to prosecute the case. And it just so happens that Farentino is the judge in the case. Naked Lie is like Amtrak on rusting rails: You know where it's going, but it sure does take a long time to get there.
