Against All Odds (1984)

Terry Brogan is a football player who has been cut from the team and needs money. Luckily his friend Jake Wise, a nightclub owner comes in and hires Terry to find his girlfriend Jessie, who apparently stabbed Jake and stole money from him. Terry ends up finding Jessie in Mexico City and not long after falls in love with her. The lovers plan to flee so Jake won't find them but before they do, Hank Sully, one of Terry's coaches shows up and tells them that Jake sent him to take them back. An interesting and complex tale of betrayal, lust, corruption and greed. Starring Rachel Ward, Jeff Bridges, James Woods, Richard Widmark, Alex Karras, Swoosie Kurtz, Saul Rubinek 6/10
