as the cookie crumbles...
21 July 2004 | by (Sumner, Iowa USA) – See all my reviews

i bought this movie at a random video rental store about three months ago because on the back of the box it explained the movie to be like desperately seeking susan. when i went home and watched the movie i laughed, i gagged, i pondered... i noticed there are five key points to this movie. 1.) directed by nora ephron, who brought us "hanging up", "sleepless in seattle", and "you've got mail", "cookie" is some what a coming of age story about a girl named cookie. She is in a mixed up family, basically she's the result of an affair her dad had with a single woman. and when her dad comes back she's forced to grow-up and accept her family 2.)in the beginning she strolls around new york city with her best friend Pia, who is played by the fantastic rikki lake, "babycakes", "cry baby", "hairspray". Eventually Pia is forgotten about in the movie as it becomes angled toward her family issues. 3.) the family issues are SO stupid. her dad comes back from jail after about 15 years and realizes he no longer is big and important to the MAFIA scene any more. how stupid... the father is horribly portrait, and is just all around stupid, not funny at all. 4.) after cookie starts working for father she meet vito, an incredibly sexy guy, with whom i now love, and though cookie keeps messing up vito and her eventually end up together. 5.) this is what makes this a fairly good movie... at the end where they fake the father's death cookie wakes up with vito and a song comes in. it is the song "should be so lucky" by kylie minogue, my anthem! and really the soundtrack is fairly good, so i do recommend seeing this movie its a solid 7 of 1-10.
