Fatal Instinct (1993)

[Carl Reiner film; Armand Assante, Sherilyn Fenn, Kate Nelligan, Sean Young]

A spoof of the late 80s and early 90s suspense thrillers and murder mysteries, including Fatal Attraction and Basic Instinct. A man leads a dual life. As a cop, he arrests criminals, and then defends them as an attorney. He is seduced by a woman while his wife is having an affair with a mechanic. Lots of other subplots and visual gags in the style of Naked Gun.

Deon Aumaier is the torch juggler in the background of one scene. The movie originally included a great sight gag where the waiter bumped into the juggler, causing him to catch the torches on the wrong end. Then, after burning his hands, the juggler ran to grasp the breasts of the mermaid ice statue centerpiece. Unfortunatley, this scene ended up on the cutting room floor.
