Middling courtroom drama based on the John Grisham novel in which a juror (John Cusack) and his girlfriend (Rachel Weisz) conspire with both sides (as played by Gene Hackman and Dustin Hoffman), offering to buy the verdict in a lawsuit against a gun manufacturer. Despite director Gary Fleder's fast-paced visuals, the thin characterizations aren't emotionally involving nor is the all-too-pat and morally flawed resolution credible. A cynical view of the legal system, some violence and minimal rough language and profanity. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents are strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
