Last night a group of friends went to a late night showing of The Lincon Lawyer. My theory going into it, how can a movie with Matthew McConaughey and Ryan Phillippe be bad? Even if the script is the equivalent of a brown paper bag filled with doggie doo lit on fire... it still is starring some of the finest eye candy Hollywood has to offer, heck yes.
Let me just start by saying that since it was a late show there were only about 10 people in the theatre, every single one of them were law students at my school which was pretty funny. Law students a legal movie? Big surprise. Anyway, this was one of the best movies I have seen in a long long time. It was the epitome of legal thriller, well written, suspenseful, with a twist.
Siskel and Ebert i.e. Kate and company gave it two thumbs up. Plus a surprise 45 mins into it, the Prosecutor is the guy who plays Reese Witherspoon's ex/current hubby in Sweet Home Alabama... mmmmhmmmmm.
