A funny, heart-touching movie that doesn't take itself too seriously. The colorful cast of characters makes it interesting every step of the way. This movie was an effortless vehicle for Bill Murray. Anyone else notice how his accent came and went throughout the movie? Gotta luvit!
Good courtroom dramas have that surprising twist at the end. I kept waiting but it didn't happen here. There seemed to be a lack of interesting chemistry amongst the characters as well. A good premise that failed to live up to its potential. Grade: C.
Predictably unrealistic. Its no fun when the good guy wins so easily. Grade C-.
I suppose it was well done if it was meant to be darkly depressing and invoke a feeling of despair. Maybe I just can't enjoy a story that drags on with little or no spark of hope. Just sayin... Grade C
This one did not live up to its potential. Good idea for a story but you have to at least care about the characters and I did not. The only redeeming feature in the film was an aha! moment near the end. Grade D+
