Watch Cookie's Fortune
- 1 hr 58 min
This comedy focuses on an oddball family of misfits, living in a small town in Mississippi. When wealthy widowed matriarch Jewel-Mae Cookie Orcutt takes one of her late husband's guns and kills herself, several family members see it as an opportunity to gain control of her fortune. Instead of admitting that Cookie committed suicide, her nieces Camille and Cora, the two women who are the first to find her lifeless body, manage to make it look more like a homicide. They plot to cast suspicion on Cookie's handyman, Willis, as the key murder suspect.
