Overview

Supermodel Rachel Hunter stars in this suspense story as Susan Price, a successful author whose latest novel has just hit #1 on the best-seller list. But Susan's celebration is short lived when her fiancée, publishing mogul Jack Reynolds (Gary Busey), is murdered, and it quickly becomes obvious that someone is trying to frame her as the killer. Susan goes underground and, using an assumed identity, she gets a job as a relay operator for the hearing impaired -- as a way of keeping tabs on District Attorney Beth McDaniels (Marlee Matlin), who is deaf. However, while she tries to find a way to clear her name and keep track of Beth's case against her, Susan finds herself taking a greater voyeuristic pleasure in "listening" in on the conversations between Beth and her boyfriend, Todd (Anthony Natale). Two Shades of Blue also features Eric Roberts, Patsy Pease, and Robert Miano.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
The pivotal -- and howlingly nutty -- scene in this otherwise quasi-competent B-thriller comes at the midway point, when Rachel Hunter, working as a phone operator for deaf customers, "translates" for Marlee Matlin an obscene call from unctuous murder suspect Eric Roberts -- one which goes all the way for both women. With an Oscar-winner on board (Matlin for Children of a Lesser God) and an Oscar nominee (Roberts for Runaway Train) as the villain, a level of credibility props up Hunter, who shows confidence and promise as a model-turned-actress. The story, however, has a few lapses of logic, the phone-sex-for-the-deaf scene aside. Still, the outlandishly campy ending makes it worthwhile to diehard fans of cheap thrills.
