Dennis Quaid and Ellen Barkin star in the romantic thriller THE BIG EASY, a box office hit that captivated audiences with its saucy blend of New Orleans nightlife, steamy romance and sultry suspense. When a hood's murder triggers a bloody gangland drug war, detective Remy McSain (Quaid) is on the scene. He's a smooth-talkin' cop who fits right in with the easy style of Cajun country. Remy meets his match in Anne Osborne (Barkin) a no-nonsense Assistant District Attorney in town to investigate police corruption. At odds from the moment they meet, their electrically charged attraction keeps the sparks flying.
