Storyline

Widowed for three years, judge Monica Barrett is surprised to learn that she is on the initial long list of twenty under consideration to fill the current Supreme Court vacancy. Her confidantes in the know believe that although she is not as high profile as some of the other nineteen, she has a good shot of the appointment because she is seen as being fair, knowledgeable and non-partisan, as witnessed by the support she receives from opposition Senator Garland Wolf. But most importantly, she doesn't have any skeletons in her closet, at least to that she will admit or of which people know. While on vacation alone in San Francisco, she meets Irish writer Jack Sullivan, who begins to woo her. Being naturally cautious but a good judge of character, she does go out to dinner and have drinks with him, but she does not divulge her real name or her real job. After their encounter, she learns that Jack is not who he appears on the surface as he begins to stalk her with incriminating evidence ... Written by Huggo

Soapy Chick Flick for Soapy Chick Flick Lovers
11 June 2011 | by poj-manSee all my reviews

I give Judicial Indiscretion a 5 merely for splitting the difference. If you are looking for realism the film is a Zero. If you are looking for Soap with Sudsy Men and Women that goes a cut above most LifeTime Material then you will like this one. It has "Liftime Juice."

The "Juice": The character is a Supreme Court Judge nominee and she looks stylish and fabulous. So do the sets and the locations and the men and women...and the main protagonist is not a housewife or businesswoman but a FEMALE SUPREME COURT NOMINEE! YOU GO GIRL!

This is what is referred to as a Strong female role model in other comments with good moral values, a "properly deceased husband" (so she is single by virtuous method), a hot daughter in college, clothes and money and power. Plus...for her age...she is a good looking MILF. Anne Archer is getting some somehow! This is all the juice a Lifetime movie needs!

I also disagree with the comment about Ann Archers skills. She's been on screen since 1970 every single year of her life. She may not be Sophia Loren but she is an actress survivor for 40 years. I say "Bully to You, Anne Archer! You earned it!"

The realism fails on the moronic character representation. I suppose...given Weinergate (and others)...that the Anne Archer judge could be so smart and so stupid at the same time. Why...she has made it to the point of becoming nominated for a Supreme Court Justice but...hey! Mr. Studly says he is an Irish writer and maybe he could be Mr. Right so I'll just go out to dinner with him,never ask anything about his past that may concern you, never think "I'm a possible Supreme Court nominee...maybe people are out to get me"...I never have real discussions about legal issues...I just flit from scene to scene looking glamorous!

If you like the Soap Fantasy and think that watching a Smart Strong woman make some really dumb decisions is your fare then have at it. If you watch stupid people do stupid things over and over (Weinergate for ex.) in the world and are tired of it...no matter what their position in life...then watching another stupid smart person won't work.
