Fair Game

Fair Game Information

Fair Game is a 1995 action thriller film directed by Andrew Sipes. It stars Cindy Crawford as family law attorney Kate McQuean and William Baldwin as Max Kirkpatrick, a Florida police officer. Kirkpatrick ends up on the run to protect McQuean when she is targeted for murder by ex-members of the KGB with interests in a ship owned by a Cuban man who may lose it in a divorce case being pursued by McQuean.

The film is based on Paula Gosling's novel of the same name, which was previously adapted into the 1986 Sylvester Stallone film Cobra.

Locations used for the film included Coral Gables, Florida, Miami Beach, and the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary.


Kate McQuean (Cindy Crawford) is a Miami lawyer who"?in the course of a divorce proceeding"?attempts to seize a 157-foot freighter docked off the Florida coast in lieu of unpaid alimony.

The freighter is the current base of operations of Ilya Pavel Kazak (Steven Berkoff), a former KGB agent who has become an international money laundering expert, and he has also become the leader of a group of terrorists.

When Kate is unintentionally hit by a stray bullet, Miami detective Max Kirkpatrick (William Baldwin) is assigned to the case, and then an attempt is made on Kate's life.

Max becomes her protector, as it turns out that Kazak wants Kate dead. Max and Kate travel throughout Florida, dealing with Kazak's henchmen along the way. When Kazak has Kate kidnapped and taken to the freighter, Max boards the freighter in an attempt to rescue Kate. The film ends when Max and Kate decide to blow up the freighter, to put an end to the whole mess, after Kate refuses to give Kazak the city's money. As the freighter sinks, Kate says to Max, "You owe me a new boat." The duo laughs as a rescue helicopter picks them up.



Box Office

Fair Game is considered to be a box office bomb, grossing only USD$11.5 million out of a $55 million dollar budget.

Critical response

Fair Game was panned by critics, with review aggregation website Rotten Tomatoes giving it a score of just 13% based on reviews from 24 critics, or 2.4/10 on average. Most critics singled out Crawford's poor acting, with Liam Lacey of the Globe and Mail saying that "One could scavenge the thesaurus to find synonyms for 'awkward' to describe Crawford's performance."

It was nominated for three Razzie Awards, for Worst Actress (Crawford), Worst New Star (Crawford) and Worst Screen Couple (Crawford and Baldwin).
