The Big Easy

The memories I had of this movie were that it was a pretty decent drama, with some very sexy scenes with Ellen Barkin. Re-watching it now, the over-acting kinda ruins it — everyone is trying to put on a super New Orleans accent (especially Dennis Quaid) and it comes off bad. The story isn’t particularly captivating either, and the steamy sex scenes don’t come as very steamy anymore (yeah, gotta admit that seeing this as a kid was probably quite a different experience). Age has not been kind to this one, but it was neat to see young John Goodman, in that setting pre-Treme.
