Joanna Going gave her all, meanwhile, and isn't mentioned on the box at all. I bought the DVD to see her, and every red-blooded male out there bought it for the same reason. Who are they kidding with this Cameron Diaz jazz? It's a taut mystery story, too, with real characters in an unreal situation. I loved it.
Meanwhile, Cameron Diaz who only has a cameo that lasts a few minutes at the beginning of the film has second billing, and a huge spot on the front cover. So don't buy this movie for her if your a fan she's barely in this one.
Keys To Tulsa spends most of its two-hour length teetering on the brink of being a convoluted mess, but the wit and charm of the script and the cast combine to make it a worthwhile watch. There are a lot of characters with a lot of back story, and at times it's easy to forget who has done what to whom.
Still, I'd check it out if only to catch a glimpse of Joanna Going who is the hot point of this otherwise respectable movie.
Stoltz, saddled with a bad haircut and the unfortunate name of Richter Boudreau, is completely miscast as a reporter who mostly just walks around with his shirt open, and his love scenes with Vicky (Unger) and Cherry (Going) are pretty tepid, especially in the scene where Going's punk rock stripper character drags herself over a plate of sausage and eggs en route to a morning quickie (can you say yuck?).
And the film isn't even half as interesting as I've made it sound! Cinematography and soundtrack are competent, but the story doesn't make sense, dialogue is DOA, characters uninteresting, direction listless, and actors bored. Only some morbid and compulsive form of curiosity kept me going until the very end. Not even bad-good.

I wasn't expecting much based on the reviews here, but I have to say that I've seen a lot of worse movies than this. Read morePublished on October 12, 2010 by bandazar
This is another movie that seemed to suffer of the "Pulp Fiction" effect, as it pretty much relies on attitude, cool badass characters, stylish cinematography and edgy... Read morePublished on February 2, 2004 by gonn1000
I bought this movie because I collect movies with Cameron Diaz and I can say it was disapointing. She appears during one minute at the beginning and never again! Read morePublished on July 2, 2003 by Cameron Kennedy
the story is boring and stupid, the actors act very bad, except Cameron Diaz, but we only see her 5 minutes.Published on June 25, 2003 by H. Georges
Maybe it's something about the water in Annapolis, but I too thought Joanna Going was spectacular. Mary Tyler Moore was fun as a nasty mother, too.Published on December 9, 1999
