A down on his luck lawyer, proves his mettle by doing the improbable.
8 October 1998 | by (Canyon Lake, Texas) – See all my reviews

Walter Matthau delivers a stunning portrayal of a near defunct attorney who takes a desperate case. In this film, Matthau's character must gain the release of severely troubled patient of the "corrupt" state mental hospital of Maryland. With a performance such as this, many must wonder why Matthau settles for such poor roles on the big screen.
