Blue Bay High School in South Florida is home to guidance counselor Mr Lombardo (Matt Dillon), known as a ladies man. Rich girl Kelly (Denise Richards) is one of the students who wants him for her own, regularly flirting with him, until one day she reports that he raped her. The two officers investigating the case, Detective Gloria Perez (Daphne Rubin-Vega) and Sergeant Ray Duquette (Kevin Bacon), are divided on whether or not Kelly is making up the story.
But then Suzie (Neve Campbell, When Will I Be Loved, The Craft), another student from the other side of the tracks, claims that Mr Lombardo raped her as well. The plot twists and turns are unexpected, and the three end up in bed together in a hot menage a trois. Later the two girls make love one on one in the pool.
Nothing is as it seems – for Sam Lombardo, the two young women, or the investigating officers. The film turns into a very enjoyable trashy murder mystery that will keep you wondering and guessing throughout.
The unrated dvd includes more of the pool scene than the Rated R version of the movie. (AB)
