Don't blame Kathleen Turner or Sara Paretsky for this tragedy. This is a case of a book that went to movie and was savaged in the process.
Turner does her best to make this disgusting script believable. What were the writers on when they wrote it?
Sara Paretsky's V.I. Warshawski, a raven haired, Italian/Polish Chicago detective was wasted in this flop. The writers, or should I say butchers, took the characters from three separate Paretsky books, threw them into one story, and used the plot from a separate Paretsky novel.
Barely watchable, one can only pray that Warshawski will get another chance on the screen someday.
