Jewel is a beautiful drifter who attracts the undying devotion of three men -- Randy, Randy's cousin and lawyer Carl and Detective Dehling. Part security seeker, part femme fatale, Jewel strings each fellow along until someone literally ends up dead.
A bartender (Matt Dillon), a lawyer (Paul Reiser) and a detective (John Goodman) each have hard-luck love stories about Jewel (Liv Tyler), an acquisitive manipulator who enters their lives and brings reams of bittersweet romance. The dark comedy is a mile wide and an inch deep, existentialism from Mad magazine, making the jokes too obvious. Elvis Mitchell
