Format: VHS Tape
A fast talking smart mouth cop investigates a cocaine ring who specalizes in a lethal form of cocaine and sells it to the highest bidder. Basically what the viewer has here is the female version of BEVERLY HILLS COP With Goldberg having the same dialouge Eddie Murphy had. The violence and bloodflow never stops from the opening scene right to the climatic finale. The best part was the massive shoot out in the mall. The film has one weak point Sam Elliot, wasn;t really convincing as a bodyguard who ends up falling for Goldberg. Whoopi Goldberg pulled off a very funny genuine performance. The film is worth seeing and is much,much better than BURGLER realased the same year.

I'm surprised at the bad review Amazon gave this. I really enjoy watching the film over and over. Whoopi is as funny as ever in her "character" rolls and the drama adds another dimension. There is profanity, but not inappropiate to the movie. I think she did a great job and if you liked Jumpin' Jack Flash, I think you'll like this one.

A Whoopi Classic!! April 2 2007
By IJustDiedAlive - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
This movie has always been one of my favorites from Whoopi Goldberg. She gives a great performance with plenty of comedy and drama. This is a great drug movie. 20 years old and still great!!

Not so fatal June 23 2008
By Nuisance - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Whoopi has been in plenty of good films and a very little bad films. Fatal Beauty is not a bad film but it's not the best Whoopi can give you. I loved Jumpin Jack Flash but this movie doesnt have the appeal that Jumpin Jack Flash did. Fatal Beauty is still worth a look despite its flaws.

Plot: Fatal Beauty is in reference to a drug that kills its users within a few hours of its use. Whoopi Goldberg plays Rita Rizzoli, a cop who constantly goes undercover to find crooks and bust them. She stumbles unto the lethal drug called "Fatal Beauty" one night during a bust and is bent on finding out who is supplying it. She has to put up with a corrupted millionaire who she believes is in on the whole operation and his bodyguard Mike Marshak(Sam Elliot) who is attracted to her.

Opinion: Fatal Beauty has its share of positives as well as negatives.
Positives: Its funny(even though the laughs are sometimes sporadic), there are serious moments in the movie that sometimes work(like Rita revealing why she does what she does), the action scenes are decent, and the movie as a whole is a decent watch. Negatives: The laughs are sporadic, there is no chemistry between Whoopi's character and Sam Elliot's character(hell, there is more chemistry between Boris and Natasha of Rocky and Bullwinkle than these two), Sometimes there are more unintentional laughs then genuine laughs, sometimes the movie feels like a Beverly Hills Cop knockoff(Rita gets so deep into a case that it costs her her job just like Axel Foley). Other than that this movie is still worth watching. Its far from the best movie that Whoopi has been in but its also far from the worst(Theodore Rex and Burglar). Its still worth being in your Whoopi Goldberg collection.

The Heat Is Off! May 16 2012
By Scott T. Rivers - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
This ludicrous "Beverly Hills Cop" rehash proved a big-screen disaster for Whoopi Goldberg. "Fatal Beauty" (1987) substitutes gunplay for a coherent script - giving the actress nothing to work with. Desperate re-editing only makes matters worse. Whoopi's first truly bad movie and, sadly, not her last.
