Quotes

announcer: Divorce Court is a dramatization based on cases and issues raised in the family courts of this nation. None of the participants knows the outcome of the case before hearing Judge Keene's decision. The jurisdiction is a combination of laws in all 50 states, therefore the laws in your community may differ. The cases are presided over by Judge William Keene, who served on the Superior Court of California for 18 years.

the verdict: big laughs!
18 January 2003 | by (anaheim, ca) – See all my reviews

Oh, man, I haven't thought of this one in years. When court shows were court shows. Not like today's version of this show, and the innumerable "People's Court" imitations of half-brained geeks standing behind podiums to some sassy judge. This was a dramatization of an actual case with the biggest belly laugh inducing actors carrying it all out and the whispering Jim Peck crouching behind the partition detailing the obvious. Real life judge William Keene watched over everything with some of the funniest facial reactions ever. I used to watch this everyday after school in 6th grade, cackling at all the dopey adult content. "Hadn't he found you and a co-worker on a copy machine, removing her blouse and bra?!" "Didn't he hear you say, 'Pluve pluvo moseire', faster, harder my dear!'?" We were watching a female leapord give birth and that's all!" Hopefully someday Court TV might by the rights to this (wherever they may be) and air this in the middle of the nights.
