Winner of the Edgar Award in 1986 for best screenplay.A grim screwball comedy about a clean-cut New York bond trader (Daniels) who accepts a ride home from a strange but attractive lower-class woman (Griffith).

Things get stranger when she takes him home to meet her mother, asking him to pose as her husband. The film takes a sharp turn into psycho-thriller territory, where the woman's ex-con husband (Liotta) shows up.
