PG | | Comedy, Crime, Romance
A New York district attorney works and flirts with his adversary and her kooky artist client, who is on trial for a murder she didn't commit.
At one point, the two main lawyers were men and Dustin Hoffman and Bill Murray were offered the film.
Do you always cross-examine people?
Tom Logan: Only when they lie to me.
The night Logan can't sleep and Chelsea arrives at his apartment, there is falling rain vigorously streaking the outside of his window (and later Chelsea's window when they arrive at her loft) but exterior scenes have only wet streets.
SPOILER: The syndicated broadcast version offers a considerably changed ending, in which the Daryl Hannah character goes from being innocent of murder to being guilty of one of the murders. (There are also differently edited versions of the Chelsea-is-guilty ending.)
