V.I. Warshawski (1991)
Critic Consensus: With V.I. Warshawsky, Kathleen Turner proves more than up to the task of leading a cop thriller -- it's the script that sadly isn't up to snuff.

Critic Reviews for V.I. Warshawski
Turner, with her leonine sexiness, remains a radiantly adult actress. She deserves better than this kid-stuff thriller.
"V. I. Warshawski" has a breezy style and a serviceable, even surprising detective plot. And it has Ms. Turner, who makes the most of V. I. Warshawski's sardonic humor.
The film looks as if it were shot through ripped pantyhose. It took three writers to craft a script of unvarying cliches. And the direction, by Jeff Kanew, is all you'd expect from the hack who brought forth Revenge of the Nerds and Troop Beverly Hills.
Mistakenly believing that it can succeed on nothing but the notion of a woman doing a "man's job," V.I. Warshawski is zilch in the plot department; most half-hour detective dramas on television have more compelling story lines.
Audience Reviews for V.I. Warshawski
Kathleen Turner's great as a tough-boiled, leggy, private eye investigator in this thriller movie.
