        This is a tough one but overall I would say see it. Not for the blah courtroom drama or Daryl Hannah "acting" like a retard again. Watch it for the chemistry between Redford and Winger. Winger is just so likeable.

        Not Redford's best but hes a great actor so anything he's in is gonna be good. Debra Winger and Daryl Hannah are really good in this as well, not to mention very sexy. Not the best movie, but a pretty good comedy/romance nonetheless.

        It may not be sure if it's a comedy or a thriller, but it's still a decent two hours and worth a watch.

        Robert Redford looks out of place in this legal thriller played for laughs that feels like a glib, vacuous 80s TV show pilot.
