Great Acting
whpratt116 January 2006
Had no idea just what this film was going to present and became quite surprised by the great acting and fantastic character study of people of all races and problems who entered a police station and were booked. Lea Thompson,(Christine Paley),"The Unknown Cyclist",'98 played a young rookie on the police force, who obtained the highest grades in the Police Academy, however, she needed to learn about human nature and how to approach people with a sort of kind understanding. Robert Loggia, (Lt. Mike Brosloe),"The Deal",'05 was the boss of the police station and took Annie under his wing and tried to teach her some of 101 Police Work. There was a nice appearance by Carl Reiner,(Norman Friedler),"Oceans's Twelve",'04, who was involved with a mercy killing of his wife. There is also a cross dresser who looks pretty good in woman's cloths depending on how you feel about such matters, as the police had to deal with this person. The actors all did an outstanding performance with their great skills, however, I thought Lea Thompson showed her great acting talents in this film. Enjoy

Rookie cop gets a look at several diverse characters who are accused of varying crimes and all have interesting stories.
RockyFan11 August 1998
An intresting movie to say the least. It is a montage of different stories; some funny, some intriguing, and some poingent. Definitely worth renting if you're looking for something offbeat or are trying to teach some morality /ethics class. By giving unconventional looks at controversial issues, such as euthanasia, drunk driving, and AIDS discrimination, as well as several others, it shows that nothing in the world is black and white, but often somewhere "in the grey area." The film has a very good cast. Only a couple of major stars, but a lot of recognizable faces, who are enjoyable to watch.

On a scale of 1-20, The Right To Remain Silent racks up a 12.
