Made by and for the TNT cable network, this sharp, satirical courtroom drama skewers the increasingly symbiotic relationship between the judicial system and popular media. The story centers on the trial of a famous model (Gina Gershon) who has been accused of murder. The media touts it "the trial of the century," a notion notorious celebrity lawyer Norman Keane (James Garner) does nothing to dispel. He also doesn't seem to be concerned about the myriad of rumors flying through the airwaves. Reporter Brenda Whitlas (Kathleen Turner) is not as easily fooled as the public and tries to ferret out the truth. Meanwhile a rookie lawyer involved in the case tries desperately to stay afloat amidst the confusion. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

If you're looking for a movie that stays in the realm of reality this is NOT it!!!! Reminded me of an episode of a weekly TV show. Well at least the first half did.................Yes, I bailed, it was that lame!
This was a cute movie. It had a light comedic edge with James Garner playing the powerful criminal attorney coaching the "newbie" attorney on a high-profile criminal case. Kathleen Turner plays a great, hard edge, scandal revealing reporter always trying to get the sensational story. The supporting cast was good in their roles playing the naive attorney, the paralegal who wants to get ahead... The movie came together nicely. Not an award winner, but entertaining.
