[first lines]
Angela Masters: [narrating] When I graduated from Tucker Acting School - "go parakeets!" - they called me a drama queen. I don't know why. I never wanted to act, I wanted to coach. To direct. Coaching actors is like showing them how to create a new personality for the character they play. That's scary. Here I am receiving the Best Director award, the big kahuna. The "mother Tucker". Things kinda went askew when I, *ahem*, started making major money coaching, giving sympathetic personality ...

Rare original comedy with superb cast
22 June 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

THE WHOLE TRUTH is a unique comedy. The premise of an acting teacher who coaches defendants to transform themselves into the appearance of innocence is completely original. Actress Elisabeth Rohm (in a departure from dramatic roles like LAW AND ORDER) portrays a self-deluded acting coach with touches of Carole Lombard, Lucille Ball, and the young Diane Keaton. In a surprising turn Eric Roberts plays a foreign mobster who is both scary and hilarious. For those familiar with Roberts playing dark dramatic characters, this role will be a revelation. Sean Patrick Flanery (BOONDOCK SAINTS) is a once successful television actor who has hit a rough patch. The superb supporting cast includes comic actors Rick Overton as a henchman, John Fugelsang as a prosecuting attorney, and Jim Holmes as an ethically challenged defense attorney. Beneath the comedy is a commentary on how easily justice can be "gamed" by the unscrupulous.

I'm truly puzzled by some of the negative responses from some at the Seattle Film Festival. The audience I saw it with (there were two screenings) was entertained. THE WHOLE TRUTH is that rare PG comedy for adult sensibilities.
