An actress (Gina Gershon) accused of the murder of her brother-in-law with whom she may have been having an affair is defended by a young, naive attorney (Edward Kerr) whose strings are being pulled by a slick celebrity lawyer (James Garner). Kathleen Turner also appears as the tv tabloid "Scandal Central" talk show host who exposes the legal sham and the actress' pretense. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

Goofs

Angela Beale is said to "be licensed to have a gun". In 1998, the state of California did not require that gun owners be licensed. A permit must be obtained to carry a concealed weapon and assault weapons must be registered, but no other licenses need be obtained. See more »

Quotes

Rica Martin: I haven't met a guy worth a second date in the last ten months. Three of the guys I 86'ed over dinner, told me they thought I was a lesbian waiting to happen. They might be right, so far, I've been too busy to give it a shot.

Great Movie, Great Cast
15 October 1999 | by See all my reviews

This is a great movie!! It is much much better than most made for T.V. movies. Edward Kerr is so 'engagingly' charming and wonderful. I truly enjoyed his portrayal of lawyer Roy Guyton. Kathleen Turner is hilarious as the reporter/talk show host. The rest of the cast is equally good. All in all, this is a movie well worth watching.
