Victoria "V.I" Warshawski is a Chicago based private detective who agrees to babysit for her new boyfriend; then he is murdered. Being the detective type, she makes the murder her next case. In doing so she befriends the victim's daughter, Kat, and together they set out to crack the case.Written by
Late in the film, Victoria "V.I." Warshawski (Kathleen Turner) returns to Smeissen's (Wayne Knight) hideout to get some information out of him. She goes upstairs to his office and, as a warning, fires her gun at a bowl of walnuts sitting on his desk. The film cuts to a reaction shot of Smeissen, then back to the wide shot. Several items on the desk have moved on their own. Most notably, the red file folder has gone from sitting under the bowl of walnuts to sitting next to it. The phone straightened itself out, and the walnuts that flew out of the bowl have drastically changed positions. See more »

I have never read the books, but I LOVED THIS MOVIE. Kathleen Turner was PERFECT in this role!! i disagree with others who say she was miscast--WRONG, WRONG, WRONG!!! They couldn't have picked a better actress for this detective. I saw this film when it was in theaters, and loved it then. I got the chance to see it again on Encore today, and it has lost none of it's punch or humor, not to mention action. I just wish it was half-an-hour longer!! I thought Everyone was wonderful in the film, especially the little girl. And I adored the music! I wish they had made more films from the other books. i WOULDN'T MIND OWNING THIS ONE! tHIS IS A REAL GEM.
