What an annoying woman!
29 December 1999 | by (Austin, Texas) – See all my reviews

Judge Judy is an annoying and rude woman who constantly berates the people in her court, giving them little or no respect. She reminds me of many teachers I had in school. I highly recommend "Judge Mills Lane," because he (usually) respects the people in his court.
