A running gag in the 1991 movie “V.I. Warshawski” has detective Kathleen Turner being asked what V.I. stands for. I am sure the critics had a field day. Vaguely Interesting? Vastly Inferior? Virtually Incomprehensible? Stop me!!! Actually, the movie isn’t that bad. Not that good, either. The plot could have been an episode of “Remington Steele” or “Jake and the Fatman.” The big, moussed-up 1990s hair (on men and women) is entertaining. But who cares if she solves the murder mystery if all the suspects end up dead anyway? Heck, Tony Soprano could have managed that in 29 fewer minutes.
