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.

At 36:37, Sean Young spins 3 plates with her feet while having sex. At 48:46, Deon Aumaier is the torch juggler between two torch twirlers in a restaurant scene. The movie originally included a great sight gag where the waiter bumped into Aumaier, causing him to catch the torches on the wrong end. Then, after burning his hands, he ran to grasp the breasts of the mermaid ice statue centerpiece. Unfortunately, this scene ended up on the cutting room floor.
The entire movie may be seen here.
