Most of what transpires is low-key, affectionate comedy and a fair amount of fun.

Cookie's Fortune is a wittily diagrammed portrait of a small town shaken to its roots by this deceptive calamity. The movie, though, never really becomes more than a diagram.

What's so distinctively charming is the easygoing tone, which manages to turn black comedy into a strangely gentle, touching and delicate affair.

This movie delivers agreeable performances and a charming, amusing story that offers little in the way of substance.
