Robert Altman brings this John Grisham tale to the screen, and the result is a very good film. The plot involves a high-powered lawyer, Rick Magruder (Kenneth Branagh), who is seduced by a sexy waitress, Mallory Doss (Embeth Davidtz), whose father (Robert Duvall) is tormenting her. Magruder takes on her case, and very soon finds himself in a situation way over his head.

Three Miami roommates–Jazz (Troy Beyer), Michelle (Paget Brewster), and Lena (Randi Ingerman)–have problems finding the right men to fill their lives. In this uninspired melodrama, much of the film involves sex-filled interviews with women on the street for Jazz's TV talk show, "Girl Talk."

We didn't really need a sequel, but there may be some appeal to a follow-up of a loser, and this film fills the bill. As the story continues, Larry and Richard (Andrew McCarthy and Jonathan Silverman), who are suspected of fraud, set out to clear their names. However, they will need Bernie, but he is dead.
