Anyone watching this on TNT or see if before.

This is the first time I have seen it and it's pretty good so far. I didn't realize there were so many top bill actors in it... thought I guess when it was made a lot of them were still getting their names noticed. It's also kinda cool seein some of them who have been in other movies together.

Always raises some pretty hard issues. Racism, death penalty, how jacked up the court systems are from state to state.

It's a pretty good flick.

SPOILER:

"Yes they deserved to die and I hope they burn in Hell!!"

Isn't that based off of a John Grisham novel?

John Grisham's writing is fascinatingly boring.

Yes its a very good movie. It was my favorite for a while when it came a number of years ago.

My favorite movie based upon a Grisham book is "The Rainmaker". "The Firm" sucked, IMHO.

Yes, and no. I like his writing. Of course, I read Clavell and Michner.

I have never read one of his books, but most of the movies adapted from his books have turned out to be pretty entertaining. The Firm was ok, if not a little ridiculous.

Someo f the stuff in this movie is turning out to be a little butty too... like the extremes that the KKK guys are willing to go to... I just to got to the part where they're snatched Sandra Bullock... Damn she's hot...

Jesus, what do you read at bedtime? Michener could bore the balls off a brass monkey.

A combination of John Grisham, P.J. O'Rourke, and Melatonin are what let me get to sleep at night.

I never said he was useless, just boring.

The book was much better, but it WAS a good movie...

I love that book... Ups and downs, action, romance, mystery, and a surprise ending... it's got it all.

Great movie, Ashley Judd and Sondra Bullock yumm. The Runaway Jury would have been better if the DUMB FUCKS didn't turn the tobacco companies into the gun companies.

Really good flick. Great acting and an emotional story. On a different note they just had to put the holywood full auto in there when he uses an m16 to shoot the rapists. Or maybe a converted SP1, I noticed it had the large screw type pivot pin when they showed the closeup of the weapon during the trial.
