Stu bends down to measure the tire tracks out-of-frame and then says that 32 inches is a match for a Town Car. But there's nothing about a Town car's tire tracks that would measure 32 inches. The only thing that could be measured from where it was would be the track width, which is close to 60 inches for a Town Car. See more »

Not Quite John Grisham but good enough.
25 May 2003 | by See all my reviews

I thought this movie would be like the average TV Movie, but a good performance by Regina King, and the uniqueness of having a deaf star character put it over the top. Ms. Matlin plays (Dana Lacy) a deaf woman and campaign leader who is put on trial for the murder of her employer, Senatorial Candidate Sander Morgan. Regina King plays Ronnie, her (Female Johnny Cochran) lawyer who has never lost a case. This film has a Memphis setting, so it is comparable to John Grisham books. This movie has a surprise twist ending, and it kept me interested until the final second. I would give this movie a B+.It is not as good as Grisham, but good enough.
