[while getting dressed as Naomi helps him]
On my first day of law school, my professor says two things. First was: from this day forward, when your mother tells you she loves you, get a second opinion.
If you want justice, go to a whorehouse. If you wanna get fucked, go to court.

I've got to say this - this movie is a true masterpiece, and just might be the best court-room drama ever made (it's definitely one of the top 3 anyway). Everything about it is perfect - the script is perfect, and so is the directing. And don't get me started about the acting. Richard Gere nailed his part, and this was at the time he actually played in good films. But the one who steals the show here is without ANY DOUBT young Edward Norton in his first big part. His acting is nothing but brilliant and even genius and even here you can understand why he's one of the best actors to ever grace the screen. You have to see it to understand, since I do not want to spoil the story for you. The supporting cast is also very solid, and I loved seeing John Mahoney (best known for playing Martin Crane, in sitcom "Frasier") as the corrupt Maire of Chicago. "Primal Fear" will keep you on your toes all throughout it's 2 hours, and there are twists until the very end. A perfect 10 for this one, I couldn't find any flaw about it. A must-see.
