Most people like happy endings. Me? I’d just like any kind of ending. Which is what makes “Broken Flowers” (2005) unsatisfying. Other than that, it’s relatively funny. Bill Murray does his usual schtick. He’s a reclusive millionaire who visits a bunch of women he slept with years ago, trying to figure out if he had a son with any of them. Sharon Stone is enjoyable as a Nascar-widowed, wine-swilling, trashy single mom. Her teenage daughter’s full-frontal jailbate scene had me rushing to imdb.com to see how old she was in real life… 21… whew, now I don’t feel so creepy.
