They mention early in the movie that Louis is apprehended by the two gay guys (Reggie's neighbors). Nobody (not the prosecution, nor the defense) calls them to the stand as witnesses. See more »
Enter: Matthew McConaughey. In his best performance (behind A Time to Kill). It is obvious he was born to play the lawyer. The next lawyer TV show, they should cast McConaughey. With the watered down crap he's done for the past few years, it's amazing to see him in a good role.
The Lincoln Lawyer is a brilliant movie about the flaws in the justice system, and one man who tries to correct them.
I can imagine how some people would have issues with the pacing. The movie moves along at a very fast speed. If you can pay attention and digest all of the information quickly, you'll enjoy it even more.
If you enjoy law movies, movies involving crime, movies with great acting, then watch this.
