Body of Evidence Details


[[Performer~P100711~Madonna~madonna]] plays Rebecca Carlson, a sex bomb who parades naked in front of the open windows of her houseboat at all hours while the lobstermen catch crabs. This entry in the [[Feature~V4149~Basic Instinct~basicinstinct]] sweepstakes poses the question: If love hurts, does sex kill? The judge and jury certainly want to find out when Rebecca's latest conquest, a multi-millionaire, dies of a heart attack while making love to her. Eight million dollars was bequeathed to Rebecca in his will, and District Attorney Robert Garrett ([[Performer~P45196~Joe Mantegna~joemantegna]]) is convinced that Rebecca, knowing that her rich lover had a weak heart, killed him with wild sex so that she could get her mitts on the money. Rebecca's lawyer, Frank Dulaney ([[Performer~P16547~Willem Dafoe~willemdafoe]]), thinks differently, suspecting the millionaire's private secretary Joanne Braslow ([[Performer~P2102~Anne Archer~annearcher]]) of the crime, since she was dumped by the millionaire for Rebecca. Besides which, Frank is attracted to Rebecca himself and throws legal ethics out the window as he starts a sadomasochistic affair with her. ~ Paul Brenner, Rovi
