I don't pose, I don't preen, I don't put perjured testimony on the stand. I don't make a mockery of the American legal system.
Well, you have your style, and I got mine.

This one had all ingredients for a great comedic recipe. It surprises me that it didn't recieve more attention.
A great view of how something seemingly simple can quickly become absurd. All through this movie were characters of stark contrasts. What ensues is a complete loss of control of a simple thing and the way in which the different characters handle it.
The irony of the whole thing is that the harder the serious ones tried to control the situation, the more out of control the thing got.
The real brilliance though, lies in Richards' character, Richard Rietti. Playing as an actor, he approaches life as one big play, and the lawyer as yet another role. All the world's a stage. I think this movie points this out for us. In the end, we can only laugh at man's attempt to establish order, whether in the courtroom, or in life, in the face of chaos.
