Goofs

While the movie is set in the late 1980s, many of the cars seen in some of the outdoor scenes were not produced until the late 1990s or early 2000s. For example, in one outdoor scene before the verdict is read, a 2004/2005 Mercedes 350SC or 500SC is clearly seen. See more »

Surprisingly good
20 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The movie had a really great script; it was funny, dramatic and touching. I was really surprised by Vin Diesel's performance, I wasn't expecting him to pull it off. I think Jackie D himself, his personality and his words helped Vin a lot there. I was also impressed by Raúl Esparza as Tony. I've seen him on Broadway and I have been wowed by his stage performances. I wasn't sure if he could make the transition, but he was the perfect paranoid junkie. The only problems I had with the movie are with tiny details like extras dressed in 2006 fashions and flat screen monitors on desks. Knowing that the trial began in the early 90's, it caught my attention and stuff like the computer monitors shouldn't grab attention. Overall, "Find Me Guilty" is a great movie, and I highly recommend it.
