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 »
This is not the greatest movie ever made, but it is surprisingly good. Your attention is grabbed from the very start and you're taken on a great ride. Films like this, which don't insult your intelligence, tend to be few and far between these days.
James Garner's plays a canny defense attorney who will stop at nothing to win a case. Kathleen Turner, looking incredibly different from her Romancing the Stone days, turns in a great over-the-top performance as an investigative journalist. Edward Kerr is excellent as the new kid on the block, torn between his ambition and his conscience.
