As Good as Its Gets for a TV Production
15 July 2000 | by See all my reviews

The U.S. has way too much litigation that acts as a hidden tax for everyone who buys goods and services. Lawyers are scum. So perhaps it is best that this TV gem has rarely been scene. I hate to see lawyers favorably depicted. Despite my bias, this was an easy to like film because it exposes the shotgun TV news magazine approach that is usually all style and sizzle, but lacking in substance. Leslie Nielsen plays it straight (no comedy) as the TV personality being sued by a doctor plaintiff. Tess Harper plays the shopping mall based lawyer, seemingly not in the same league as attorneys for the powerful news network. The deck is stacked against the establishment. If you liked Paul Newman's "Verdict", as I did, you will like this similar film.
