Despite the tepid response to "The Rachel Papers," Harris earned enough notice to land the assignment of helming Goldie Hawn in the thriller "Deceived" (1991), with the actress cast as a happy homemaker who discovers her husband is not who she thought he was. A critical and box-office failure, "Deceived" set Harris' career back, with four years elapsing before he was given another opportunity. "Bad Company" (1995), however, was a tepid thriller best remembered for its steamy love scenes between Laurence Fishburne and Ellen Barkin than its convoluted plot. Undaunted, Harris reteamed with Barkin for another thriller "Mercy" (lensing 1998), with the actress playing a detective who gets drawn into the world of upper-class women who lead double lives.
