Courtroom antics surround the jury involved in hearing an embezzlement case. A shy accountant (Pinchot) in one of his four roles in the movie is charged with the crime, but during testimony by a very sexual secretary (Scoggins), he is painted to be an extravagant lothario which gains him press coverage and sudden adoration of women in the street. This prompts the judge to sequester the jury, setting up conflict and shenanigans with the jurors. A feminist (Redgrave) battles a developer (Thicke), a waiter (Baldwin) chases a hooker (Locklear), and a bellhop (Pinchot again) pursues a housewife (Graff). Written by

Okay, let's face it. Made for TV movie comedies don't sell. Jury Duty is one of those films that really has no direction. Still there is some funny moments in this film. Probably the best scene in the film has to come when Hope Hathaway (Scoggins) is called to the stand. Wind starts to blow threw her hair, a bad 80s song is playing, and the men in the jury box are drooling all over themselves. When the bailiff swears her in he is so mesmerized by her beauty. Then, He says "God help me" instead of "So help you God". I laughed a little bit at that. Another high point is Bronson Pinchot's parody of Geraldo Rivera. That's basically it. It was retitled as "The Great American Sex Scandal" when it hit syndication. Don't ask me why. Still, this one is a good time killer.
