Goofs

When Ben Matlock is riding with the reporter, Dan Abrams, Matlock tells Abrams there is a car following them, and to hit the brakes. When the car following them hits them from behind, Matlock turns around in his seat in order to write down the license number. However, the cars were together nose-to-tail, and there is no way he could have seen the license plate. See more »
