Goofs

It would be close to impossible for any law firm to draft, finalize, and arrange formal service of a fraud complaint against a billionaire, plus schedule a deposition with him, all in less than one week. A demand for production of documents is usually needed first, with a minimum of two weeks for the plaintiff to respond, then a deposition is scheduled to obtain the plaintiff's testimony about the documents.

not worth watching
7 February 2016 | by michelle_kummerSee all my reviews

I was so excited to see this film when i saw the preview and all the a list actors. Al Pacino, Anthony Hopkins, Malin Ackerman and Josh Duhamel, are among my favorites. What a disappointment, the plot is a mess and makes no sense. Al Pacino speaks with a ridiculous southern accent, Alice Eve is one of the worst actress, its like shes on anti depressants the entire film no emotion or connection with Josh. It was so frustrating to watch. I don't know whats happening in Hollywood, maybe they are running out of ideas but this film had so much potential. This film is up there with Knock Knock. Don't waste your time seeing it.
