Deceived (1991)

Damian Harris directs Goldie Hawn, John Heard and Tom Irwin in this yuppie-in-peril thriller where a rich wife discovers her husband is not everything he seems.

Glossy trash. The twists are guessable, downright predictable at times. Goldie only really comes to life in one scene… a moment that would work best in one of her comedies. Also her protagonist seems way more disgusted about the hidden poverty of John Heard’s background rather than the fact he might have blood on his hands?! I’m pretty sure this was the first 15 certificate VHS I rented without the beard of a parent to complete the transaction.
