Hollywood's view of the judicial system
30 November 1999 | by The BaronSee all my reviews

As that one gentleman's e-mail stated that the film did touch on some issues.Judges in films or TV films are portrayed as fanatics,prejudiced,narrow minded,sexist and,on the rare occasion,senile.I haven't seen the film myself for it's not available in my area.
