To be honest, I always had some mixed feelings about this flick. First of all, even though the John Grisham’s books adapations were really popular in the 90’s, I have to admit those were quite entertaining but I also find them always terribly far-fetched. Still, from a marketing level, this was a smart move. Indeed, after ‘Pretty Woman’, Julia Roberts was the most popular actress in the w... read more

"What I thought was a classic 90s movie that I had never see actually not really classic worthy, and after looking at the ratings, it's not universally a classic either... Either way it does have two huge 90s stars and the movie is very 90s... and it was pretty good."

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- April 2017 (33 movies items)

" DVD- 2hrs. 21min. First Viewing It's a well-crafted thriller with a pair of compelling lead performances, but The Pelican Brief is also a dull, strained film that only starts to come together an hour-and-a-half in. So much of the story could've been streamlined, and it would've cut a lot of bloat and added much more focus."
