The Defenders- The 2 Quirky Guys Still Pay Off ****
This quirky Jim Belushi is showing how being that way can really pay off. His performances have been great and he knows how to tackle a jury with his unusual methodology.
His partner realizes that a young college student is lying to conceal the fact that he was attempting to buy drugs. Due to this, one defendant has already been sentenced to 9 years and things don't look good when the 2nd defendant goes on trial for robbery as well. Our young guy comes to his manly senses and admits the truth but in the process he fingers O'Connell for attempting to tell him to lie about everything. This becomes a real battle of ethics with his girlfriend, the prosecuting attorney. The ending is so appropriate.
Belushi defends a nurse-to-be who is accused of solicitation. The man knows how to mold a jury.
