Emily Lloyd - pure gem
5 August 2000 | by Joyce HauchartSee all my reviews

Lazy rainy evening, not ready to watch a big masterpiece, rent Cookie. Great actors who are not doing a good job, bad plot and screen writing, but the best part is reserved for Cookie - Emily Lloyd. She is the small diamond in this film. Of course, her character has been worked out pretty well by the writer. Anyway, it's a marvel to see her develop from "almost hooker" to "mob woman." Peter Falk disappears in every scene where she enters.
