Time Out says

Muddled saga of journalistic ethics puts Rolling Stone reporter Travolta in a spin when he falls for Curtis, the aerobics instructor he's about to trash in an exposé article. Director Bridges' main interest, however, seems to be the leotarded contours of the interminable aerobics sequences. A second storyline concerns a computer company chairman who's been arrested on drug offences, but claims in an interview that Washington is after him for selling his products to the Eastern Bloc. This demonstration of journalistic integrity sits uneasily beside the unscrupulous methods Travolta deploys in his health club story, and if that's the point, the movie certainly meanders towards it. Rolling Stone editor Jann Wenner plays himself in an extended plug for the magazine.
