I caught this movie one night on TV, unplanned, but stayed with it to find out how this guy gets out of the trap that others dishonestly put him in -- see how the evidence played out. I was hooked on a "memorable quote" in the movie during the prison stay where Tom Selleck's inmate friend told him during mealtime that "you don't have to speak up in here, but you have to stand up!" Gave me a personal motto that stayed with me.
I liked the story. It kept me watching; and I appreciated that Tom's wife stayed with him and believed in him and that the detective who helped him pursue the bad guys believed in him.
