    Has no ragged edges or bothersome detours, and flows from surprise to delight. At the end, when just desserts are handed out, it arrives at a kind of perfection.
  2. Meanders around Holly Springs, Mississippi, with the fuzzy benevolence of a Hallmark Hall of Fame presentation.
  3. 70
    Robert Altman, in a benevolent mood, has made a lovely ensemble comedy from Anne Rapp's original screenplay.
  4. 70
    Southern Gothic lite -- with a bite.

    Cookie's Fortune, for all its faults, is a welcome respite. In the uneven hands of Altman, you're better off with a flawed bit of fluff than an outright atrocity.
  6. None of the film is exciting, and, despite the preeningly smooth flow of the story, little of it is interesting.

    Great actors, nice rural location, great music. Actors interact well. Many characters could easily be over acted, but were perfect. Chris O'Donnell's character is one where the acting could have gone wrong so easily, yet I love the way his character is, and I care for the character he plays. Expand
