Really excellent mini-series originally viewed on TNT. Don't know how we missed it in 2004 but the acting and story are well worth watching! Especially the husband and wife team of William H. Macy and Felicity Huffman working so well together. Tom Selleck is, as always, thoroughly enjoyable as a "bit rough around the edges" cop not at all like the character he now plays on Blue Bloods!

"I enjoyed this film. It's probably Tom Selleck's best role and Shamar Moore did his character justice as well. Once I saw the ending I replayed the entire DVD to go back and catch things the second time. Knowing what motivated the prinicpal characters made it even more enjoyable the second time through. This was a great film and it shows that a thriller can be great without the sex and extreme violence."

"This is a complex, riveting movie. All players turn in top-notch, believeable performances. One quibble: I would have liked it to have had a stronger sense of place; the anonymity of the locale was off-putting, but not enough to gig it a star. Still, it made for an entertaining evening."
MR. AND MRS. MACY'S PARADE

"This well done adaptation of Scott Turow's novel is a made for tv miniseries, and features an outstanding cast in a complex, but riveting story. William H. Macy and Felicity Huffman (Mrs. Macy) get the acting honors, as their characters are more fleshed out and flawed, and their performances are wonderfully controlled and executed. Not to take anything away from the other actors: Tom Selleck as the cop whose devotion to his ex-lover makes him break the law; Monica Potter as the up and coming attorney who looks like she's going to be the city's next prosecuting attorney; James Rebhorn as the security cop whose dying secret gives the plot a strange twist; Glenn Plummer as the halfwitted Squirrel who confesses to a triple murder; Shemar Moore as the loudmouthed con who finds Jesus and has his own little secrets. Since this is a tv miniseries, the pacing does slow down some times and handicaps the movie's suspense, but overall it's an entertaining, well done film buoyed by the star turns of the Macys."
