Still, from a marketing level, this was a smart move. Indeed, after ‘Pretty Woman’, Julia Roberts was the most popular actress in the world and Denzel Washington was also becoming a very strong value and combined with John Grisham’s current best-seller power, it was a great combo. Still, as pointed out by Roger Ebert, it is rather sad that the guy behind ‘All the President's Men’, one of the greatest thrillers ever made, would eventually end up with a decent but still rather straightforward flick like this one.

"I re-watch this movie all the time. I don't really like some of John Grisham's stories, but this one is a win. The setting - New Orleans - is close to my hometown in Mississippi, so it reminds me of home. Plot: A law student uncovers a conspiracy, putting herself and others in danger. Location: New Orleans, Louisiana Fav Quote: "Everyone I've told about the brief is dead." "
