Fox operates Elysian Fields, an agency that caters to lonely, wealthy married women. ("Only women?" Byron asks warily. "Call me old-fashioned," replies the wily Rolling Stone, sporting an odd upswept hairdo and suits that look several sizes too big for his slinky body.) A fellow escort (rocker Michael Des Barres) complains that one of his clients insisted that he suck her toes, but Byron lands the lovely Andrea Allcott (Olivia Williams), wife of an impotent Pulitzer Prize-wining author named Tobias (James Coburn). The couple lures him into sexual and literary quicksand.
Whenever Coburn or Jagger are on screen, the film springs to life. (Byron whines that he'd felt safe from seduction because the clients were married. Luther snaps back: "I didn't say happily. You'd better learn to listen for adjectives.") When not serving as a straight man for Jagger's zingers, Garcia--whether paired with Margulies or Williams--gives a largely solipsistic performance.
