    As campy as a flick by Banderas' evident artistic mentor, Pedro Almódovar.

    Appears to be several different movies spliced together, with unfortunate results.

    (Griffith's) appearance often verges on the grotesque. Which, come to think of it, could be said of the movie as well.

    Mark Childress, who wrote the screenplay based upon his book of the same name, would have been better off leaving this Southern Gothic between two covers.
  5. 25
    Although Banderas occasionally shows flashes of style, individual elements too often go together like grits in a puff pastry.
