Great script, shame about the director..., 24 June 2004
Author: Richard Nott (la__margra) from Birmingham, England

I was invited to a preview Q&A showing of this film by the writer of the original script, and was given a copy of the script to read after.

The only thing I can say is the thing they put on the screen bears no relation to the original concept and script. As far as I can tell the only thing they kept was the first word of the title.

Tony, the writer, was so ashamed of the final outcome he tried to get his name taken off it. It really is a shame because the script i read would have made an excellent movie, the director just had to stick his oar in though.

You'll notice in the credits there are 4 or 5 names down as writer, one is Tony, one is another writer, one is the director!!!, and god knows who the others are.

All in all, what could have been a brilliant courtroom thriller/drama, turned into an hour and a half farce.
