Starring Jack Nicholson, Susan
Sarandon, Cher, Michelle Pfeiffer.
Three dissatisfied single women--Sarandon, Pfeiffer, and Cher--long
for a dark knight to sweep them off their feet and out of their
dreary small-town existences. Their prayers are answered in the
form of the new-greasy-millionaire-in-town Nicholson, who proceeds
to give each woman the lusty romp of her lifetime. Nicholson
seems to have only one fault: he uses his strange supernatural
powers recklessly and wreaks havoc on the town. The three women
use their own powers to escape Nicholson's fiendish clutches.
