  • El Biffo's rating of the film Cookie

    I'll watch anything with Peter Falk, even this embarrassing 1980's picture Susan Seidelman made with costumes she had left over from DESPERATELY SEEKING SUSAN. Script by cheezmaestra Nora Ephron. Fabulous supporting cast includes Dianne Wiest, Brenda Vaccaro, Michael Gazzo, Lionel Stander, Ricki Lake and Jerry Lewis (!) but it still stinks like if someone had saved that wrapped up package of fish from THE GODFATHER.
