Critics reviews

It’s easy to tell early on that Carl (Tony Goldwyn) is responsible for the botched robbery that leads to Sam’s (Patrick Swayze) death, which is a gripe that Janet Maslin had. However, [that doesn’t] account for director Jerry Zucker’s remarkably fluid narrative pacing, nor how impeccably cast all of the major roles are, with Swayze and Demi Moore, especially, acutely portraying beacons of idyllic, white-collar romance with physical, blue-collar appeal.
