A very entertaining Mafia parody!

This was about a godfather type mafioso (Peter Falk) that was just released after spending 19 years in prison. He makes up with his daughter (Emily Lloyd) and together they pull a real caper on the other head of the crime family, in addition to doing a con job on the local DA to help him snuff out the other family head. A very funny movie. It was good to see Peter Falk in a part where he was the criminal instead of the detective. Bob Gunton, who played the warden in the Shawshank Redemption is the DA. Also watch for Jerry Lewis.

In the spirit of Desperately Seeking Susan...

One viewer wrote that this is kind of movie you should try for lazy Saturday afternoon viewing. I agree. Cookie is no grand royal of fans, but rather a fun little film that works in the spirit of Desperately Seeking Susan, which is no surprise that the film is directed by the same person, Susan Sneidman. Emily Lloyd has to goofy, hip kind of attitude that Madonna did as "Susan." She, mixed with the stuffy business-minded mafia family makes for a fun time. I was drawn to this film as a Peter Falk fan. He is Dino Capisco, a mob boss released from prison. His estranged daughter is Cookie is sent to work for him. He needs to get some money back from an associate before making a break from the mafia life. However, his associate went and sold off his shares and basically says, live with it. But not Dino. And not Cookie, neither. Diana Wiest plays Cookie's absolutely wacky mother and Dino's girlfriend who's waiting to get married to Dino when he does make his break from the mob. Jerry Lewis has a small part as a rival associate. And to my surprise, the movie also stars a very young Adrian Pasdar, which current viewers of Judging Amy will recognize as the D.A. and Amy Gray's love interest. He's a hubba hubba. For you eighties fans out there, this movie is probably right up your alley. It's good times!

Not so good

It was planned as a feel good movie like 'Desperately Seeking Susan' but in fact it is unfortunately only goofy and boring. I don't know why such a accomplished writer like Nora Ephron had written such a bad screenplay and the poor actors and actresses like Ricki Lake, Dianne Wiest, Peter Falk, Brenda Vaccaro, Lionel Stander or Jerry Lewis have had no chance to show their talents. And poor Emily Lloyd. I think it costs her a lot of sympathy in Hollywood and have had prevented to become such a big star like Gwyneth Paltrow or Winona Ryder in the USA.
