| Silly and tiresome....
The story begins with a death...but whether it's a murder or suicide is uncertain. The rest of the film consists of the trial as well as the jury's deliberations.

The film "Ladies of the Jury" was a ridiculous film and complete waste of the many talents of its star, Edna May Oliver. Now, five years later, the studio decided to re-make the movie...though I have no idea why! Both were terrible films...and represent the worst of the courtroom dramas Hollywood has ever made. Everyone is a caricature instead of a realistic individual and incredibly stupid and broadly written caricatures they are! Plus, so much of the courtroom drama is absolute nonsense...and no judge allowing such proceedings would be allowed to remain on the bench. Amazingly, the story (with SIGNIFICANT rewriting) would be reworked into "12 Angry Men"...one of the best movies of the 1950s. But a LOT of re-working was necessary....as so much of "We're On the Jury" is bad...such as the sole holdout in the jury arguing that the defendant is innocent because of "a woman's intuition"! Uggh!

Overall, slightly better than the original...but considering how awful that was, this isn't a surprise!
