I had a very smart professor back at State. He did a whole lecture once on the dangers of relationships in the workplace.
What do you think I'm proposing here, picnic baskets in a meadow? I'm talking about you and me bent over the Xerox machine when no one's looking.
Oh. He didn't cover that.

I had never heard of this film before watching it and from its description and out-of-the-way billing was not expecting much. However, I thoroughly enjoyed it. This story of a lawyer straight out of law-school being handed the highest profile case in America being guided behind the scene by a big-hitting celebrity lawyer is no classic and will never be remembered in any poll but is solid entertainment. It turns out to be cleverer than it appears and cons well. It also comments on the role of the media in high profile cases and the way the practice of law uses and abuses this role. This film entertains and is well worth looking at.
