Beeper is a 2002 thriller film starring Harvey Keitel, Joey Lauren Adams, and Ed Quinn. The movie, directed by Jack Sholder, tells the story of a doctor named Richard Avery (Quinn) who is kidnapped, and his wife, Susanne (Adams), who must find a way to save him. Detective Steve Taylor (Keitel) is also involved in the investigation, trying to solve the case before it's too late.

The movie is set in Los Angeles, where Doctor Avery is a well-respected surgeon. One day, while he is at work, he receives a mysterious call from a stranger who asks for his help. Believing it to be a prank call, Avery initially brushes it off. However, the caller insists that he is in grave danger and needs Avery's help.

As the day progresses, Avery's colleagues and patients begin to receive strange calls from the same anonymous caller, who identifies himself only as "The Caller". When Avery leaves the hospital that evening, he is abducted by a group of masked men and taken to an unknown location.

Susanne becomes worried when Avery doesn't come home, and she eventually receives a call from The Caller, who demands that she raise a large sum of money for Avery's release. With the clock ticking, Susanne turns to Detective Taylor for help, and the two begin to investigate the case.

As the investigation unfolds, Taylor and Susanne discover that the kidnapping is part of a larger conspiracy, involving a pharmaceutical company and corrupt law enforcement officials. With Avery's life on the line, the two must race against the clock and navigate a dangerous web of lies and deceit to save him.

Throughout the movie, the tension builds as Susanne and Taylor race to uncover the truth behind the kidnapping and rescue Avery. The character development is handled well, particularly Adams' portrayal of a worried wife who refuses to give up on her husband. Keitel's performance as the grizzled detective adds depth to the story, while Quinn does a convincing job as the kidnapped doctor.

Overall, Beeper is a well-made thriller with solid performances from its lead actors. The plot is engaging, with enough twists and turns to keep the audience guessing until the end. The film includes classic thriller elements such as a ticking clock, corrupt officials, and high stakes, but it manages to stay fresh thanks to its strong cast and effective storytelling. If you're a fan of suspenseful thrillers, Beeper is definitely worth a watch.
