That splat you just heard was Kathleen Turner’s once promising career finally hitting rock bottom.
Less than twenty years after raising temperatures in Body Heat, Romancing The Stone and The War Of The Roses, she is relegated to playing the meanie in a talking baby movie.
As for the quality — well did I mention it was a talking baby film?
Also slumming in this formulaic yawner is Christopher Lloyd, but then again, he was never mentioned in Oscar time.
I’ll bet that after this mess, Turner’s looking back with nostalgia even at past debacles like Moonlight & Valentino and V.I. Warshawski.
