PHYSICAL EVIDENCE - Format: [DVD Movie] was a flick that I thought would be fun to see again. And it was.
My favorite parts were the interactions between the characters. Theresa Russell portrayed a defense attorney named Jennifer Hudson, while Burt Reynolds was Joe Paris, the cop on trial for murder.
Watching the growing attraction between these characters as they tried to solve the case (in between trial scenes) was fun, if a bit predictable.
The movie was set in Boston, so I also enjoyed the street scenes, as well as the interiors of some really gorgeous homes, like the loft where Theresa Russell's character lived with her very annoying fiance, who was materialistic and a bit of an obsessive-compulsive snob.
Lots of action, some violence, and a few thrill scenes, especially toward the end--all added up to a so-so movie that I'll probably watch again, but it certainly wasn't one of my favorites. Not like I thought it would be, since back in the eighties I obviously had different tastes.
However, I decided that it deserved three stars.
I recommend this film based in the genre and the MUSIC!
A number of times I have watched a new film that I had never seen before and I would notice that the music was touching me deeply only to discover that it was composed by Henry Mancini. Case in point is "Physical Evidence". In this film you will hear one of the most beautiful and haunting themes composed. As the credits roll by for 1 minute and 35 seconds and then you see "Music by HENRY MANCINI". Wonderful!
Thanks Mr. Mancini!
Check it out!
It's a shame that this movie did not come together. It had all the marks of a solid thriller, yet never reaches its mark. I recommend it only for those who (Like Me) love Burt Reynolds and always desire a thriller with stars.
In short, if you can overcome Russell's bad acting and Crichton's lackluster direction (He Got Nothing From His Stars), you might be able to barely stand this below-average movie.

Hilariously funny. Lots of campy dialogue. Theresa Russell's character comes across as snooty and dislikeable, with an affected and condescending accent. Read morePublished 19 months ago by triton
