To be completely honest with you, Kim Cattrall is really the only reason why I watched Exception to The Rule and why I’m at best a casual fan of it. I am a big fan of Sean Young and believe she’s beautiful, sexy, very adorable, and at times at least very funny as well, but I don’t believe this is her best role and movie. Her part is important especially at the end where she ends up killing The Leather N Denim Assassin. ( As I call Kim Cattrall )
But this movie is really about how the Eric McCormack and Carla Rainer ( played by Kim ) interact with each other. He’s married to Angela ( played by Sean Young ) and has an affair with a perspective client or friend of McCormick’s boss ( played by William DeVane ) and uses that as blackmail leverage to get this young successful lawyer to pay him or. Or threatens to tell his father in law and boss ( played by William DeVane ) about their affair and he holds firm and refuses to pay her.
As you can imagine she doesn’t take that well and that is how the final scene of the movie develops where The Leather N Denim Assassin Carla Rainer ( played by Kim ) breaks in to this young couple’s home in an attempt to take Angela hostage in order to get her husband to pay ransom on her. There are good scenes before this moment like where Carla, gets rid of a man who she had a complicated history with by killing him and when he thinks she’s playing him off. A nasty murder where she literally runs him over and then blows up the car. She tried murdering Tim Bayer ( played by Eric McCormack ) by trying to run him down in broad daylight earlier in the movie. He attempts to pay her off and does so, which isn’t good enough for her which leads up to the last scene of the movie.
Kim Cattrall is really the only reason I’m interested in this movie. She’s this red-hot adorable redhead, with a beautiful body and even a quick sarcastic wit in the movie and in some cases in the movie even comes off as likable in is beyond her goddess like physical appearance. Sean Young has a good scene in the movie as well playing an adorable hostage who manages to break away from her would be captures. But Kim breaking into the home to take Angela hostage, in this beautiful black biker leather jacket, and black denim Levi’s, black boots. This scene happening at night and she sort of looks like a thief breaking into a jewelry store or bank at nigh and the confrontation that she has with Tim ( Angela’s husband ) is the really the only reasons for me to watch this movie.
