An exceptionally adept Florida lawyer is offered a job at a high-end New York City law firm with a high-end boss - the biggest opportunity of his career to date.
There is a deleted scene where Mary Ann (Charlize Theron) is looking for Kevin (Keanu Reeves) at Eddie Barzoon's party, and someone re-directs her to the library. She is shocked to find three people there engaged in a threesome, and leaves when they invite her to join in. The scene didn't make the final cut, but seeing the level of debauchery in Milton's company may explain Mary Ann's increasing suspicion of Kevin's infidelity in the remainder of the movie.
Go on, Barbara.
Barbara: We go back to our homeroom for dismissal. Unless you have a pass for sports or somethin'.
Florida Prosecutor: And is that what you did on the day in question?
Barbara: No. Mr. Gettys asked me to stay after class.

After the film's initial release, sculptor Frederick Hart sued Warner Bros. claiming that a large sculpture prominently featured in the film (on the wall of Al Pacino's penthouse apartment) is an unauthorized copy of his work "Ex Nihilo", displayed at the entrance of Washington's Episcopal National Cathedral. According to a court settlement reached in February 1998, Warner has been authorized to release an initial run of 475,000 copies of the video of the film for rental, but will have to remove or re-edit over 20 minutes of scenes where the sculpture can be seen before releasing any further video or television versions.
