Any fans of "The Long Kiss Goodnight" with Geena Davis and Samuel L. Jackson

I was just watching this, and I wish it had gotten better reviews. A really enjoyable, well-acted thriller. I suspect there was some sexism in the negative reviews....

Not a fan.

Part of the problem might stem from hoping for a film noir thriller, for which The Long Kiss Goodnight would an excellent name.

I like action movies a lot.

This seemed as though someone storyboarded a bunch of action scenes and turn them over to someone else to stitch together without any guidance or direction.

"Have fun with it" comes to mind.

This could apply to a lot of movies I like, except the characters in those usually engage me.

It just never produced the SBD (suspended bubble of disbelief) for me, as much as I like Geena Davis.

I saw it all the way through and once was enough.

There are very few movies that I enjoy/enjoyed that I don't mind seeing again.

No such interest for The Long Kiss Goodnight.




Two for two, I'm good now.

We are a government of laws, not men.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

I’m a repeat watcher and fan of this movie. It’s great fun!

I was never a fan of Geena Davis’ acting, but she hit it out of the park in this one.

I thoroughly enjoyed it when it first came out and, occasionally, I borrow the DVD from the library to watch it again. I have NO trouble believing that some government employees would subvert laws to get a bigger budget as well as "bless" known terrorists to further misguided goals. old fogey smiley

Ebert panned it.

Try The Long Goodbye... not underrated film noir.

Praised by Ebert. No hot va'Geena', but a very capable Nina.

Similar title.

I've been a huge fan of this movie since it was first released on DVD and currently own a Blu-ray copy. I've lost count of the number of people I've turned onto this movie. One of my very favorite late '90s flicks.



It is what it is.

Yes, that was a terrific film.

I forgot about that, haven't seen it in years, but I think I have a DVD somewhere.

I may look for that this week.

Thank you, Buzz!

I like Geena in her earlier films, but this did nothing for me.
Never saw another Renny film after this.

When one looks at her catalog, I think it's safe to say this killed her film career.

I think Cutthroat Island gets that dubious honor. It's likely this movie was already in production when CI was released.

I'm glad they decided to move forward with releasing TLKG -- I really enjoy it.
