"Sexy Entertainment!" - Variety

Sometimes a thief can steal your heart.Richard Gere gives "a breakthrough performance" (Time Magazine) as a rockin' 'n' rollin', hustlin' and bustlin' crook in a film about chasing after your dreams no matter how high the stakes.

Jesse Lujack (Gere) is a small-time car thief who loves livin', Jerry Lee Lewis and his Silver Surfer comic books.But most of all, Jesse loves Monica (Valerie Kaprisky), the sexy French architecture student he just met in Vegas.Determined to provide her with the good life, Jesse uses all his rockability charm to convince the resistant Monica to drop everything and join him on a trip to sunny Mexico.In a fire-red Caddy with the top down and the woman he loves finally at this side, Jesse feels on top of the world.But no matter how much rubber he burns, there's something that Jesse just can't outrun.As he races faster and faster away from his past and toward his dreams, Jesse must keep everything that's important to him -- especially Monica -- close by his side
