  • Overview
  • Details
Down-home Dicky Pilager (Chris Cooper) can't put a coherent sentence together, but he's running for governor anyway, as a candidate for those looking for an approachable leader. But his campaign hits a snag when he hooks onto a corpse in the middle of a fishing photo op. Journalist Chuck Raven (Richard Dreyfuss) smells a stink -- and a story -- so he hires a gumshoe (Danny Huston) to find out who the corpse is and its connection to the politico.
