Blood and Wine (1997)

Jack Nicholson reunited with his Five Easy Peaces pal, director Rob Rafelson, for a deliciously low-key film noir called BLOOD AND WINE. Sexy Jennifer Lopez is his girlfriend, Judy Davis is his wife, and best of all, an oily Michael Caine as his partner in crime.

Not only have I not seen this one, but I haven't even heard of it. Since Maltin is a little skimpy on plot summary, Here's what imdb has to say:

Nicholson is a wealthy wine dealer who has distanced himself from his wife with his philandering and from his son with his negligence. After he steals a diamond necklace with the help of a safecracker partner, Victor, things start coming apart. His wife sets out to interrupt what she thinks is another one of his weekend dalliances, but is really his trip to pawn the jewels.
