In theaters, the lazy haziness of this Southern ensemble comedy made the story feel like it was stuck in the mud. Full Review

Fortune is smiling down on veteran filmmaker Robert Altman with Cookie's Fortune. Full Review
David Edelstein
It's the work of an old master summing up. It sure feels that way. The screenwriter, Anne Rapp, has provided Altman with a blueprint not only for an ensemble comedy but also for a comedy that honors the very idea of an ensemble. It's no wonder Altman fell on it. Full Review
Desson Thomson
Washington Post
Won't go down as Robert Altman's most memorable movie. But it's a pleasant affair, whose greatest assets are its unhurried, benevolent atmosphere and the quiet, gem-like moments that occur among its characters. Full Review
Edward Guthmann
San Francisco Chronicle
Altman has delivered a lot of surprises in his long directing career, and his new comedy, Cookie's Fortune, is one of the most refreshing -- not because it's so good, but because it's so sweet and affectionate. Full Review
