Blood is thicker than wine in this taut thriller from director Bob Rafelson (FIVE EASY PIECES , THE POSTMAN ALWAYS RINGS TWICE  and BLACK WIDOW ). Academy Award winner Jack Nicholson brings his unique talent to the role of Alex Gates, a crooked wine merchant who schemes to steal a priceless diamond necklace with his best friend, the veteran safe-cracker Victor Spansky, played by Michael Caine. Their plans are accidentally thwarted by Alex’s jealous wife and embittered stepson when they unwittingly gain possession of the stolen jewels. Jennifer Lopez, in one of her first starring roles, plays Nicholson’s girlfriend in this story of larceny and lust.
