The beginning is very light stuff, but midway into the movie we start to see the darkside of humanity. John Hurt turns in a magnificent performance as Judd's client in a murder case. Judd can't decide if his client is innocent or guilty, but once he knows for sure he has to learn new tactics in dealing with the judicial system.
Fans of courtroom movies should enjoy this even if they are not fans of the 80s bratpack. Great directing and excellent cast make this a winner. A nice soundtrack and scenes in Boston don't hurt either. Good quality DVD but no extras.
Judd Nelson is really excellent in this movie. Of course I love Judd in anything. But this is one of those comedies which makes you think. You start out with a lot of great laughs but then later on it really takes on the philosophy of law and the justice system. All the while, keeping you informed and entertained.
This film has murder, mayhem, truth and daring. You will really be able to sink your teeth into this one. I wore out my VHS copy of it ages ago and was thrilled to be able to replace it with DVD. Buy it and you won't be sorry!

One of the best, original and flat-out funny comedies. Brilliantly written, directed and acted.Published 2 months ago by Amazon Customer
great movie - a bit bi-bipolar but well done. The first half is an excellent comedy, the second half an excellent trial drama. Read morePublished 4 months ago by erro0257
