Editorial Reviews

If there's one thing private eye Tom O'Toole (Nick Nolte, Mulholland Falls) knows, he's falling for Angela Crispini (Debra Winger, Black Widow), his seductive young client. But what he doesn't know could get him killed. Angela has hired O'Toole to prove a local teenager was wrongly convicted of murder. Following her leads, O'Toole soon suspects the town may be involved in some kind of cover-up. But what bothers him most of all is Angela herself. The more time he spends with her, the more O'Toole begins to realize she's either lying, insane or both.

I love Debra Winger. Her interpretation of Angela Crispine is consumately complex and enigmatic. The movie is about corruption integrated into American political life, but the real passion of the film is the great dynamic between Nolte and Winger. Miller's screenplay is beautiful. Check out this film, and look up Pauline Kael's review if you think perhaps my enthusiasm is misplaced. I adore Debra, and wish she'd make another film soon. Oh, why, why do American actresses lose
leading-lady status at 40?

While Leon Redbone sings "I Want to be Seduced", Nick Nolte drives through town looking as if he's lackadaisically thinking the same thing. Right from the outset, Everybody Wins plays satirical games with the conventions of film noir. Shouldn't even the hero's name, Tom O'Toole, tip us off that we're in for something a little different? What may strike some people as disjointed about this picture is that it uses disjunction by giving us sunlit noir. The evil lurking in the shadows of Tom's inability to get with the program is perfectly commonplace. Even bad-girl Angela's double-dealing doesn't fool anyone but him. (Thanks to Debra Winger's fully engaged performance--to put it mildly--we can't fault him for succumbing.) While he devotes himself to trying to uncover what everybody else already knows, nobody runs around trying to kill him or bumping off witnesses. Why bother? The tackiness of the evidence that put the wrong man in jail for murder (some teeth from his comb) points itself up as almost a prosecutor's afterthought, a formality where proof would've been superfluous anyway. (It recalls Marcel Dalio's little face-saving speech at the end of The Rules of the Game, when he dismisses a murder as "only a terrible accident, that's all.") Most of the film noir devices we may keep expecting never show up; but the joke of this picture's teasing relationship with them is how antiquated and silly and inadequate to the situation they'd look if they did.

The studio's decision to market Everybody Wins as a thriller probably didn't help it with audiences. It's not a movie for people who expect movies to do all their thinking for them. In terms of subtlety and sly wit, it's much closer to the first half of Kubrick's Lolita than to film noir.

Although I can see some cinemographic limitations with this movie, I was riveted throughout. To me, the psychology was perfect. Nolte was an investigator with great listening skills. He knows how to make friends with people, even when they are nuts. Winger is a borderline multiple personality disorder person who has a way of evading truth. I've known people like this...too many. All her evasions come from the fact that she actually was an accessory to the murder that she hires Nolte to study, ostensibly to help get a man freed who has been falsely convicted of the crime. The intricacies are too much for this forum, but at the end, Nolte succeeds in getting off the falsely accused man, but this so-called 'good act' actually is a laugh. Why? Because if the case were properly aired, the corruption of all the county's leaders would be uncovered, and the woman who hired Nolte would herself be up for a stiff prison sentence. So a good deed is done, but a mountain of guilt and corruption is left untouched. To me, that's the way it really is in life even though most do not discuss it.
