Predatory, shameless, and obnoxious ambulance chasing lawyer Geraldine Ferrett gets busted in the remote small town of Stuecksville for a moving violation. Ferrett initially thinks that she can simply resolve the situation by paying a fine, but soon discovers that the folks in Stuecksville have a very odd and strict concept of justice.
Did You Know?
The title comes from a song from the comic opera The Mikado with music by Arthur Sullivan
and lyrics by W.S. Gilbert
. The song details the unique punishments for crimes doled out by The Lord High Executioner of the play. See more
I talked to the judge. We hit him on a good day. He's agreed to decrease the sentence to misdemeanor public nuisance.
Decrease it? Okay, fine fine, what's it gonna cost me?
All this bullshit over ten bucks? Keep the change.
Not ten dollars, Miss Ferrett, ten lashes. They can flail you now and you can be on your way, as soon as you regain consciousness of course.
