Overview
Michael Douglas stars as Nick Curran, a tough but vulnerable detective. Sharon Stone costars as Catherine Tramell, a cold, calculating, and beautiful novelist with an insatiable sexual appetite. Catherine becomes a prime suspect when her boyfriend is brutally murdered - a crime she had described in her latest novel. But why would she be so obvious as to write about a crime she was going to commit? Or is she being set up by a jealous rival? Obsessed with cracking the case, Nick descends into San Francisco's forbidden underground where suspicions mount, bodies fall, and he finds within himself an instinct more basic than survival.

Easter Eggs
Special Edition DVD
Easter Egg: On the special features menu highlight the last option on the bottom of the page, then press right. This should highlight the ice-pick. Press enter/return and fifteen minute movie will play of Sharon Stone's audition tape for the movie. Once that's done go the setup menu and highlight the last option on the bottom of the page, press right and it'll highlight the ice-pick. Press enter/return and another audition tape of the other actress in the movie (I don't know her name) will show. It's shorter, only one scene.
