    Basically two hours of Glenn Close dragging her fingernails down a chalkboard. Dutton and Beatty make it almost bearable, but Julianne Moore is depressingly wasted. An idiot plot if there ever was one.

    Entertaining enough even if it's not director Robert Altman's greatest hit.

    COOKIE'S FORTUNE is maestro Robert Altman's lesser known work, an outlandish comedy about an intrigue deriving from Cookie (Neal)'s suicide in a small town in Mississippi. It is a sterling ensemble piece and Anne Rapp's satirical script excels in mockery of the Presbyterian church and the provincial racism while Altman is mostly at ease with the straightforward storyline. keep reading my review on my blog: https://lasttimeisawdotcom.wordpress.com/2015/07/13/cookiesfortune1999/

    I watched this movie twice when it first came out and have been looking for it ever since. It hasn't been on Netflix although I've had it on my waiting list for years. I recently found a copy of it on Amazon and watched it again. It's one of my all time favorites. A line I've remembered all this time, is when the sheriff tells the out-of-town detective that he knows Willis is innocent, "Because I fish with him!"

    Julianne Moore and Glenn Close are awesome. Every time Liv Tyler is on screen she brings the whole thing down.
