Reunion movie from the popular TV series reunites most of the original cast from the Los Angeles law firm of McKenzie-Brackman. In the eight years since the series ended, the founding senior partner, Leland McKenzie, has retired and left Douglas Brackman, Jr. as the senior managing partner. New employees to the firm are Brackman's over-achieving son Jason, who's at odds with his father, and ambitious and conniving associate Chloe Carpenter at odds with others. Former partner Michael Kuzak, now a successful restaurant owner, is called out of retirement to help stop the impeding execution of a former client on death row and the opposing counsel is Kuzak's old flame Grace Van Owen. Meanwhile, divorce lawyer Arnie Becker deals with his most toughest divorce: his own, where his estranged young wife has hired former McKenzie-Brackman lawyer Abby Perkins as her legal representation. Office manager Roxanne Melman deals with her ex-husband, Dave Meyer, who claims that he's dying and wants to ... Written by
It's stated that Abby never made partner, but that's a mistake as she was made a partner in the season 5 finale, which also happened to be the last episode for Michele Greene who played Abby. See more »
This was not a bad reunion movie at all!! All the story lines came to a conclusion, and it still had the same drama/humor mix. The weirdest part was seeing Dann Florek as Dave Meyer again. He is great at playing him (I forgot what annoying ass Dave really was!!)but Mr. Florek is now Capt.Donald Cragen (Law and Order SVU) to me. The fact that Jimmy Smits wasn't even in it is not a big problem at all. The important characters were there, and that's what counts. The only reason I even bought this DVD is because I haven't been able to find the series on DVD yet. If you loved LA Law in the 80's and early 90's as much as I did, you will really like this movie.
