Goofs

When a helicopter's motor fails, for whatever reason, it does not just drop straight out of the sky - the pilot puts the nose into a shallow dive and the rotor auto-rotates providing some lift. The chopper glides much like a fixed-wing aeroplane, provided it is high enough to begin the glide and develop enough rotor speed - which the judge would have made sure of since he was anticipating (or at least planning for) running out of fuel.

Quotes

Arnie: [about Arthur's grandfather] He keeps telling us you're going to make a great lawyer.
Arthur Kirkland: I wish he could remember that I AM a lawyer.
Arnie: Sometimes he does, sometimes he doesn't, what's it matter? He's still proud of you.

"This whole trial is out of order!!!!"
24 July 2001 | by (Gresham, Oregon) – See all my reviews

This was a very good movie. Al Pacino was fantastic. The courtroom scenes were intense and emotionally charged, I loved it!

Al Pacino was an excellent lawyer. This movie was so good because it showed him in the work place and how it effected him in his personal life. A very good movie, it's one of my favorites.

The best scene was the climax when he exploded in the courtroom and and screamed one of the most famous quotes in cinema history! 9/10
