Ruth Loomis becomes the first woman appointed to the United States Supreme Court. A staunch conservative, she immediately runs into conflict with Dan Snow, the high court's resident liberal. Although they never agree on the issues before the Court, they develop a respect and affection for each other after several comedic encounters.Written by

Producer Paul M. Heller acquired scenes from a real pornographic movie to double for the adult film documentary, of which scenes are shown in the film, which is the subject of legal debate and a Supreme Court law suit in the picture. Heller liaised with famed porno producer David F. Friedman of the Adult Film Association. The shots were edited down so as to be not too explicit for a mainstream movie which initially was intended to be rated PG. See more »
Justice Loomis views a pornographic film to decide it it has "redeeming social or artistic importance". This is an outdated standard for obscenity which was superseded by the so-called "Miller test" in 1973. See more »
Justice Dan Snow:
[Justice Snow being asked his opinion on the selection of the next Supreme Court Judge]
I never try to second guess a President. A man moves into the White House no one knows what happens to his mind. Only hope they have an active member card of the human race.

Walter Mathau left many wonderful performances for us to enjoy, and here is another one of them. In what could be a rehearsal for GRUMPY OLD MEN, it's great to see how he and Jill Clayburgh bounce off each other. Their characters are so different and opposite, yet they're like two pillars holding up the roof of the system. I find it difficult to fault this movie, It's enjoyable from start to finish.
