That night, Camille and Cora prepare to debut their production of Salome at the local church, in which Cora, Jason and Jack star. The soundtrack is by David A. Stewart. Meanwhile, Altman's camera strolls comfortably around town, introducing us to Cora (Julianne Moore), Camille's dim sister; Emma (Liv Tyler), Cora's daughter, who takes a pass on genteel society and works at the catfish house; and the forces down at the police station, including the veteran officer Lester (Ned Beatty), Jason the doofus sheriff's deputy (Chris O'Donnell) and Wanda the deputy (Niecy Nash). "They read you your rights?'' "Cookie's Fortune'' is Robert Altman's sunniest film, a warm-hearted comedy that somehow manages to deal with death and murder charges without even containing a real villain. Some of these people have roles in the Easter play, which is "Salome'' (the letterboard in front of the church says it's "by Oscar Wilde and Camille Dixon''). It's almost always something philosophical, never sexual.188.8.131.52 19:23, 25 November 2013 (UTC), In Bed must belong to a classical joke, doesn't it?
the lawyer (Donald Moffat) asks Willis. "He's innocent.

A black man named Willis (Charles S. Dutton) wanders out of a bar, seems to break into a home, and studies the guns displayed in a cabinet. Cookie’s Fortune mijn reden er voor is ‘er was niks anders’ Toch maar gekeken: Goed complot slecht neergezet en ook bij het begin boeide het mij niet later werd het na een half uur een beetje boeiend maar heel de film viel uit duizend stukjes zelfs de acteurs konden de film voor mij niet reden. Jewel Mae "Cookie" Orcutt, an elderly dowager in Holly Springs, Mississippi, commits suicide with one of her late husband Buck's pistols.
"Cookie's Fortune'' is the kind of comedy with a lot of laughs, and even more smiles. Emma also believes he's innocent, and demonstrates her confidence by moving into his jail cell. Fortune cookies are crisp cookies containing a small piece of paper with words of wisdom or a vague prophecy.
Neal plays Cookie, a rich widow who misses her husband fiercely. Protesting Willis's detainment, Emma refuses to leave the police station until he is freed. Otis Tucker, a detective from a larger jurisdiction, arrives that night and begins questioning locals.
She and Jason also frequently have sex in empty offices at the station. Directed by Robert Altman. There is a common joke involving fortune cookies that involves appending "in bed" — the phrase "in bed" being one of many sexual innuendo jokes along with "your mom", "that's what she said", and "said the actress to the bishop" — to the end of the fortune, usually creating a sexual innuendo or other bizarre messages.
