The courtroom set up is wrong. Benoit, Weathers, and the defense team sit near the jury box. In any criminal trial in Massachusetts the prosecution is seated near the jury, the defense on the opposite side. See more »
Robin 'Stormy' Weathers:
Unfortunately, it doesn't matter that her body was never found. Brain tissue was all over her jacket. Somebody's dead, and the jury will be perfectly willing to believe that it's Liza Williams. Now please, let's go over your story one more time.
Shall I say it in Hebraic this time, or maybe Latin? They do still teach Latin in law school these days?
Robin 'Stormy' Weathers:
Actually, yes. Steve, tell him the Latin for pain in the ass.
Um, vox hemorrhoidum?

A perfect example of why we should continue to ask the question: 'Why did Judd Nelson seemingly fade away to unknown obscurity?'
Once again we are reminded of the waste of a fantastic actor, and question why it was that Judd Nelson faded so quickly into TV limbo-land. In 'From the Hip' he might as well be playing John Bender, 5 years on from his Saturday morning detention in 'The Breakfast Club'. All the Bender traits are there - the showcasing, the cunning, the witty comments, and the lovable rogue charm. An excellent supporting cast keep the pace going, with John Hurt turning in one of his finest performances. The only problem I had with this movie is that it doesn't know whether it wants to be a comedy or a grizzly murder mystery. Despite that, it is a shame that this is one of those movies that not a great deal of people even know exists. I do admit I'm a big Judd Nelson fan (only please don't ever mention 'Blindfold - Acts of Obsession'!) so maybe I'm biased regarding the quality of this film, although I think there is something here that will appeal to everybody, right down to an obligatory romance (though i found it strange that although Robin's girlfriend tells him she loves him on 4 separate occasions, never once does he utter the words back to her).Know what? I should really get out more! EXCELSIOR.
