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

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 »
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.

Well done; maintains interest from start to finish.
Better than most of the latter-day Rockford Files, James Garner, as a famous attorney, shares the good work and screen time with other cast members in this story of a high-profile murder defense. From the outset, something smells fishy. Numerous twists and neat touches maintain interest from start to finish and make this an enjoyable, not-too-serious story. As other team attornies, Mary-Louise Parker and Edward Kerr (the real central figure) provide the intertwined (in more ways than one) secondary romantic thread. Gina Gershon is the glamorous accused model, while Kathleen Turner plays an aggressive TV reporter with her own tabloid show, "Scandals Unlimited." See if you can identify Brian Doyle Murray in several brief scenes.
In sum, worth another viewing.
