Simpatico (1999)

Directed by
Matthew Warchus

Tagline: How much can three friends share?

Plot outline:
Bridges plays Lyle Carter, a big-time Kentucky horse racing tycoon with a smeared past. When he was just a young buck he and two of his friends pulled off a racing scam in which they switched a fast horse with a slow horse, bet the 50 to 1 odds and won big. They also took photographs of the racing commissioner having hot, sweaty sex with one of their accomplices so that they can blackmail him should he figure out their scheme.

Now the photographs are in the hands of Vinnie (Nick Nolte), the most hesitant of the three conspirators. He's a drunken sleuth-wannabe and he is pissed off at Lyle for getting him into the whole scam in the first place. He calls Lyle, who is supporting him, to his place in California. When Lyle gets there, Vinnie steals his car and his ticket back to Kentucky and goes there, taking the incriminating photographs with him. His intention: to steal Lyle's wife Rosie (Sharon Stone) away from him.

Lyle finds out about this and sends Vinnie's girlfriend Cicilia (Catherine Keener) off after him. Her dream, conveniently, is to go to the Kentucky Derby and Lyle promises her box seats if she can only persuade Vinnie to give her the photographs. In Kentucky she tries to track him down and runs into the very same commissioner Lyle and Vinnie photographed. [source: filmblather.com]
