A Great Legal Flick
Last night while working on a project, I ran across one of my favorite films from college. I hadn't seen A Few Good Men in years. Now the initial part of Daniel Kaffee's transformation from a lawyer who runs from the courtroom to one who takes the courtroom by storm in a mere 3 1/2 weeks is not overly realistic. But once Kaffee decides to lawyer, it's really good.
Some lines are classic. "I want the truth." "You can't handle the truth!"
Movies like this remind me why I decided to become an attorney. The idea that a lawyer can stand in the gap and defend those who are being weak for whatever reason. And the courtroom drama doesn't hurt. So if you're looking for a good flick to fill a couple hours, you might check this one out.
