Overview

The Nobody's Fool 1994 team of Paul Newman, director Robert Benton, and scripter Richard Russo reassembled for this L.A. detective drama, beginning with a Puerto Vallarta prologue showing private eye Harry Ross Newman accidentally shot by 17-year-old Mel Ames Reese Witherspoon during his efforts to get her to return home. Two years later, the broke and divorced Ross lives in a garage apartment on the estate of Mel's parents, his movie-star friends Jack and Catherine Ames Gene Hackman and Susan Sarandon. The cancer-ridden Jack is not unaware that Harry is attracted to Catherine. Delivering a package for Jack, Harry encounters elderly Lester Ivar M. Emmet Walsh, who shoots at Harry and then dies. Harry's curiosity is provoked when he discovers that Ivar was an investigator checking into the disappearance of Catherine's first husband, written off 20 years earlier as an unsolved case, but now reactivated as Harry's sleuth-work leads him on a trail of past crimes and cover-ups. The Ames residence is actually the former Cedric Gibbons-Delores Del Rio home, and a never-completed Frank Lloyd Wright house near Malibu served as the Ames' ranchhouse.

    Reese is good, the movie isn't,

    Reese is good, the movie isn't,
    I literally fell asleep watching this. it put me to sleep.

    The very beginning alone is worth watching. It has Reese Witherspoon running away from home, and her topless scene. That's the only reason to rent this. After that it's beyond boring.
