Five movies like Miami Blues a year and, believe me, the American dream is over. The only character who seems to know the difference between right or wrong is a young hooker whose sole desire in life is to become the ideal American housewife of the 50's. Fortunately, Honor is safe because Baldwin loses his fingers and Fred Ward his teeth in the end. Recommended.
