Just okay
16 December 2009 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

Son of a prominent attorney is shipped off to the DA's office in the hopes that it will stop his all night partying. It doesn't stop, and he soon finds himself in trouble when he's found to be nearby to two separate murders. Okay crime drama/potboiler. It's a typically upper crust mingling with the bad guys tales as our hero mixes with the show girls and gangsters who seem to frequent every Hollywood night club. Its an over done tale that seems to be often on the verge of silliness. The acting is wildly uneven with good performances coming from some and other that cross well into the over done realm (some of the crooks are just awful). It's a mixed bag sort a film. Its fine to sit through once but its not something you'll need see a second time.
