Reviews
Mine: The thing that made the book so much fun was the sense of the town of Savannah. The strangeness and quirkyness of the people. That is a very hard thing to get across in a movie, and this one doesn't do it. Still worth watching for a good performance from Kevin Spacey and to see Lady Chablis play herself.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Meandering adaptation of John Berendt's best-seller about some of the more eccentric denizens of Savannah, Georgia. Cusack plays a N. Y. reporter assigned to cover Spacey's A-list Christmas party; when that gracious, noveau riche bon vivant is accused of murder later the same night, Cusack decides to stick around and see what happens. Never terribly compelling, despite several likable performances, and fatally overlong.
