"This is a deliciously wicked satire of legal eagles and their media counterparts. The cast is flawless, not limited to Gina Gershon who skewers her sex-pot image by being both victim and preying mantis (watch the opening sequence -- it's schtick to die for). James Garner just keeps getting better with age. The script is sharp as a tack, the performances and direction right on target. I'll be adding this to my collection!"

"I am a fanatic Gina Gershon fan and her being in the cast of "Legalese" is the ONLY reason I purchased it.This film which also stars James Garner(excellent,as an ethically challenged Hollywood lawyer) and Mary-Louise Parker(in a very sexy and beautifully played role,as an aide to Garner).Gina as sexy actress Angela Beale is accussed of murder and Garners' law firm handles her defense.The three leads are fine,but this film depicts the utter curruption that the American legal system has fallen to.In fact,ALL aspects of American society are shown as being totally currupt.GINA WAS GREAT,but the film VERY depessing.The picure quality of the DVD was fine."
