The squall of Hollywood sniping over movie budget excess didn't blow away with last month's launch of "Waterworld." If anything, it's picking up steam over Carolco's forthcoming "Cutthroat Island." Specifically, the question is this: Will director Renny Harlin's pirate film--showcasing his wife, Geena Davis, who hasn't been in a successful film since 1992's "A League of Their Own"--be Carolco's Waterloo? The answer depends on whom you ask.
