A Brief (Pun Intended) History of Lawyers in the Movies

13 April 2015 2:25 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Interview | See recent The Hollywood Interview news »

By Alex Simon

Lawyers in motion pictures have been portrayed as one of two extremes, devils or angels, almost since celluloid was invented. The first film dealing specifically with a law firm and attorneys, 1933’s Counsellor at Law, starring John Barrymore, portrayed its J.D.s as upstanding citizens, as did the early Perry Mason films of the same period. This quickly changed, however, with many attorneys portrayed as being capable of the same brand of skullduggery as their shifty clients. With that in mind, we bring you a list of the good, the bad and the ugly of lawyers in movies.

1. To Kill a Mockingbird (1962)

Gregory Peck’s Atticus Finch became the boilerplate for the Noble Movie Lawyer in this iconic, 1962 adaptation of Harper Lee’s award-winning novel. Atticus Finch, a small town attorney in the Depression-era South, must defend a black man (Brock Peters) falsely accused of raping a white woman, »

Tff 2014: ‘Intramural’ Interviews

31 January 2015 7:21 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Can there be anything funnier than seeing Clint Howard make fun of your “yutes” word choice? Well save of course for the obvious My Cousin Vinny judge, I think not.

But that’s not why I gathered you here today. Bradley Jackson’s brilliantly bored mind is why we’re here.

Intramural is a sports comedy written by Jackson in his sophomore year of college about a boy named Caleb (played by Jake Lacey) who is a fifth year college senior in denial about life after school. In his efforts to relive his college career as freshman intramural football champion, he tries to reunite the team, even after his friend Grant Rosenfalis (Nick Kocher) became paralyzed since the last time they played.

Andrew Disney directs this comedy, which stars Lacey and Kocher in addition to Nikki Reed, Nick Rutherford, Gabriel Luna, Brian McElhaney and SNL members Kate McKinnon, Beck Bennett and Jay Pharoah. »

Patriots Coach Makes 'My Cousin Vinny' Reference at Deflategate Press Conference

24 January 2015 1:25 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

The classic film My Cousin Vinny has just been used to explain football!

On Saturday, the Patriots' coach Bill Belichick addressed the "Deflategate" controversy surrounding underinflated balls used in the Afc Championship game last week.

In the press conference, he said his team "followed every rule, to the letter" and that he's "not a scientist, not an expert in football."

He went on to say that he's "no Mona Lisa Vito," a reference to Marisa Tomei's character in My Cousin Vinny as she had an impressive car knowledge and showed off her expertise when she was put on stand.

Belichick said that this is the last time he's going to talk about Deflategate, but on Twitter, My Cousin Vinny is trending with his reference.
