I haven't seen or heard much about Bo Derek lately, so when I noticed this movie I thought I'd tune in to see how she was doing. In "Life In The Balance" she plays a superstar lawyer turned alcoholic and drug addict, who gets one last chance to prove herself by being given a case in which she tries to save a man on death row (Bruce Boxleitner, who also hasn't popped up much recently as far as I know) after being convicted of murdering his family.
Derek and Boxleitner are OK together, and the movie - if not spectacular - is a reasonably engrossing apparently low-budget "whodunit" that is short (about an hour and a half) and to the point. I'm not quite sure why Katherine Garr (Derek) is (or at least was) such a hot shot lawyer. There are a lot of inconsistencies in the story from Eric (Boxleitner) that made me (a non-lawyer) suspicious of him from the start, and the twist at the end is certainly not an unpredictable one, but overall this isn't a bad movie. Neither Derek nor Boxleitner are going to win any awards for it, but it won't end their careers, either.
