3.0 out of 5 stars Eric Roberts is a lawyer? August 9, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
Eric Roberts has always been multi-talented and this movie showcases that. Crime fighter, boxer and all around good friend, Roberts works as a defense lawyer for an organized crime boss (Dean Stockwell). His sucess in the courthouse means trouble for him and his wife (model, Tatjana Patitz). Although the plot is typical, there are several familiar faces in this movie. As always, Roberts plays the part well and overall, the movie was a pleasant suprise.

3.0 out of 5 stars Buy used January 23, 2008
Ok, it's not the best of movies but it was ok. Very predictable at points. We had fun predicting next thing and were right most of the time...but not always.
Eric Roberts was great. The girl who played his wife can't act. Dean stockwell was as expected. All in all glad I bought used and didn't pay full price....but not bad on a snowy evening with nothing else to do.

2.0 out of 5 stars Restraining Order with Julia Robert's brother May 1, 2004
Format:VHS Tape
Ah, Eric Roberts, famous brother of actress
Julia Roberts.
Eric Roberts reminds me of alot of Tom Cruise
and Matt Damon or other actors who get
alot of roles based on their looks.
However, unlike Cruise or Damon, Roberts
has failed to take advantage
of this.
He has appeared in a couple of good
films most notably the action film
"Best Of The Best", however, most
work has consisted of low budget and many
times direct to video movies.
However, unlike Julia Roberts, Roberts
does try for the most come across as
sincere and committed in his roles.
"Restraining Order" directed by Lee H. Katzin
, is a film about a Beverly Hills type lawyer,
Robert Woodfield(Roberts)
who makes his money by defending both
good and bad people, mainly bad ones.
One day, he manages to free, a hoodlum
with connection to the mob out, and then
starts the problems for Woodfield, because
it seems that one of Robert's friend
has a debt to pay to this punk.
Woodfield, at first doesn't give this
much thought, but after his friend is killed
Woodfield demands answers from this guy,
but gets none, other than to keep his
nose out of his business.
Woodfield though pursues the situation and
eventually the mob targets him and his
beautiful wife Leight Woodfield
(Tatjana Patitz).
Even though "Restraining Order" is filled
with at times bad action and acting, it has
it's moments.
The plot itself reminds of crooked high priced
lawyers like Johnnie Cochran who defend
such profiled scum as O.J. Simpson, with
the exception that Cochran hasn't been
targeted by mob.
