This is David Lynch's weakest film and a disappointing addition to the brilliant TV series, 'Twin Peaks'. Kyle MacLachlan's reported refusal to be more involved obviously hurt the film. MacLachlan's quirky portrayal of Agent Cooper is the highlight of the series and what made it successful. Sheryl Lee who plays the tragic femme fatale, Laura Palmer is left to carry the film and she's not bad but it all seemed forced. Even the music by Angelo Badalamenti seemed uninspiring here. A pointless prequel - sort of like having a comb when you're bald.
