Storyline

Todd Barret is an aspiring businessman. He's got what it takes, but what he doesn't have is enough money to stay in college. So he cooks up a plan to make the first ever all male sports calendar. He eventually convinces Cactus Jack, a very shadowy and tough loan shark, to give him enough money to make the deal. Todd makes enough to pay for his education, but what about the money he owes Cactus Jack? Written by Sean Kilby and Jason Parker <gestalt@ix.netcom.com>

Dirty Harry Has Found a Replacement
10 January 2004 | by schweinhundt1967See all my reviews

I'm perhaps not as familiar with the works of Miles O'Keeffe as I should be,and really have seen moist of his work in the early part of the 80s.However,notice his character in this film.Correct me if I'm wrong,and it seems that quite a bit of his other,later film roles are duplicating this personna.Quiet,attentive,laconic,focused,intense,with a hostile edge.There's a persistent,if subtle menace to Cactus Jack.He's sexually magnetic,well-defined without being enormous,accurate,and a man of action and violence.Miles has turned into Clint Eastwood.
