Designing women may get a kick out of this neo-noir film in which men come in three varieties: Pigeons, sugar daddies and boy toys. Bakersfield, California golddigger Rachel (Megan Ward) puts up with her control-freak husband, Holden (David Dukes), by dreaming about her future inheritance. If Holden had any idea what Rachel was cooking up with her libidinous pal, Carla (Kristin Minter), he know just how wise he was to hire detective Clay Fairfield (John Ratzenberger) to keep and eye on his lovely wife. Long-time lovers Rachel and Carla are plotting to kill Holden and blame the crime on a patsy. Duplicitous Carla coaxes a sexy cowboy named Travis (Linden Ashby) to sleep with Rachel for blackmail purposes, but isn't snapping those photos with an eye to building a nest egg for herself and Travis. Carla plans to murder Holden while Rachel is at a popular bar and Travis has no alibi at all. Having made sure that Travis handled the murder weapon, Carla feels confident the cops will nail him as the extortionist and killer. But Travis catches on at the last minute, hides Holden's corpse and tries to beat Carla at her own game. Custody of Holden's body keeps changing hands and when Fairfield uncovers the facts of the homicide, the vixens rub him out. The perfect crime unravels further when Holden's suspicious daughter flies in from Idaho. Can Travis outfox the wily dames or will greed turn the girlfriends against each other? While director Kevin S. Tenney gooses up the suspense with jazzy film tricks like fast motion, a series of repetitive flashbacks slow the thriller down to a near halt. The sexy lesbian angle notwithstanding, the film's erotica is pretty standard and the doublecrosses fairly guessable.
