Three movies begin their Oahu run Friday.

Cookie's Fortune

Rated PG-13

A pipe-smoking Southern dowager named Cookie (Patricia O'Neal) commits suicide in order to join her beloved late husband. Stumbling upon the body, Cookie's slightly crazed niece, Camille (Glenn Close), eats the suicide note and concocts "evidence" to make the death look like murder -- because "suicides don't happen" in their family. The concocted evidence unintentionally points to Cookie's handyman (Charles S. Dutton).

Goodbye, Lover

Rated R

Set in contemporary Los Angeles, Sandra Dunmore (Patricia Arquette) is at the center of a storm of overlapping relationships and betrayals. She is the wife to one brother played by Dermot Mulroney and mistress to another (Don Johnson)


Rated R

Eddie Murphy and Martin Lawrence are wrongfully convicted of murder in the 1940s and sent to life imprisonment in Mississippi.
