Humor Abounds in this comedic melodrama
27 December 2004 | by (Orange Park,FL USA) – See all my reviews

Hurt shows himself as the force that brought this film it's best area of presentation. Especially when describing how one would work upon a 'posiable' victim. 'The Stormy Weathers' part is very amusing with his two side kicks, and his love interest is very predictable. The plot seemed to forgo the usual nonsensical areas and showed why 'lawyers' should also not only eat their own, but could use a taste of honesty in their pursuits. I found this film to be very entertaining. It has an unusual method in the plot twists that most melodramas have. This film makes a presentation of values that should matter, but seldom do in real life situations.
