V.I. Warshawski (1991)


By Scott Goldfine

Kathleen Turner stars as a private investigator V.I. Warshawski in this lightweight suspense yarn. The sexy, headstrong dick tries to crack the case of a murdered hockey player while looking after his 13-year-old daughter. The story is more complicated than need be, and less involving than it should be.

Even Turner is undercut in a film as anonymous as its main character’s first name. Charles Durning and Wayne Knight also go down with this sinking ship. Rated R.
