1.0 out of 5 stars unresolved mystery, 3 Jun. 2013
This review is from: The Gingerbread Man [DVD] [1998] (DVD)
My only recollection of this film is near the beginning, I seem to recall a waitress at a party
carefully taking a glass which had been drunken out of by one of the main characters. Wrapping it
very carefully and slipping it into her bag,and from that moment until the end of the film,the
glass nor the reason for taking it, is ever brought up???? Other than that I remember nothing else about the film.

I sympathise with "old groaner" (above), and found the film mystifying and confusing; I understood only half of what was being said because the characters mumbled, with a lot of slang that made it difficult to follow the plot line. And what was the point of placing most of the scenes in darkened rooms, anyway?

Thank you much for your comment here. All I needed to see were the words "mumbled" and "scenes in darkened rooms" to know this was not a movie I wanted to suffer thru. There seems to be a continuing fad, if that's the correct term, wherein actors mumble or speak in a hushed whisper like way that I just can't grasp. Saw a fairly good action flick last night and one character, and a lead at that, went through the entire movie speaking his lines in a very hushed tone. Wish they wouldn't do that.
Anyway ... thanks again.
Cheers.

Hello "old groaner"... I do wish you had groaned a bit louder so I could have avoided this dog of a movie.... no offense meant to dogs. The glass in the handbag was the give-away that this was going to be one of those lame, not-what-it-appears-to-be movies. If anyone could not see the guy was set up by the time she first got in the car, then they have obviously been watching too many masterchef cooking shows. The glass, or what I assume but they somehow forgot to bring up again, was possibly stolen to remove her fingerprints from the scene. Why? Possibly so no one could prove she was there? It would seem the director or editor may have had seconds thoughts about this plot development and failed to delete this act of brazen kleptomania from the finished reels. But if you consider the movie as a whole, that crystal tumbler was the real star. Where did it go? What brand was it? Was it rented from a catering company or privately owned? What had been in the tumbler before the residue was dumped in the ash tray? The biggest question is whether insurance would pay for such petty theft? However, if it was leaded cut glass crystal with a pedigree logo, it might not be so petty a theft! So many burning questions unanswered and such a waste of the talents of the brilliant Robert Duvall. What I wonder is why she gave up the fight in the wheel house so easily just because he set off the red flare? Given there was a major hurricane in progress and the flare was shot considerably downrange from the boat, she could have escaped and been lounging on a beach in Central America before the police would have located the source if the distress! If FEMA, had been involved they would not have found the source yet! I suppose we shall never know for sure about that glass for sure ....unless all is revealed in a tell-all sequel from her prison cell....the Gingerbread Big House?
