Anyone who has watched "The Paper Chase" or has attended law school will identify with these three students as they begin their first year of law school at this fictional college. The movie title is based on the method of relentless questioning of students in the classroom by law school professors (the Socratic Method is named after Greek philosopher Socrates who taught his students by asking question after question in in seeking to expose contradictions in their thoughts to guide them to arrive at a solid conclusion).

Terry King is a genius college graduate who applied for law school because he wanted to prolong his career as a partying college student while never expecting to have to study or do work. Actress Erica Shaffer is delightful as she plays the part of Susan Walsh who is efficient, studious, and organized. Her apartment roommate dropped out of law school after the first day of class, so she takes Terry as her roommate. Charles Johnson is a slick fast-talking hustler who needs to work through law school, and he ends up getting involved in various unscrupulous jobs.

The movie shows the students, particularly these three, being grilled by their various professors during class, and it follows their various antics outside of the classroom. It's full of adult humor, while being a little risque throughout. This movie is absolutely hilarious.

I just watched this on Netflix video-on-demand. This is currently not available for purchase as a DVD (apparently it had been prior to my writing review as amazon is showing a Best Sellers Rank of #481,590 in Movies & TV. I'd love to see it be produced again as a DVD, or if anybody knows how I can buy a used one please let me know.

A good movie, I expected much more laugh, but eventhough it didn't happen, the story envolves you quite enough so you enjoy the film. From 0 to 10 I'd give it a 7!
