I love movies with great courtroom scenes in them....What are some of your favorites?...I'm hoping to get some ideas on movies I haven't seen yet...A few that come to mind are

Primal Fear ~ Brilliant ending too!...Loved Edward Norton for this role..

Fracture ~ Just saw this the other night...

And Justice For All ~ Al Pacino is awesome in just about any role...

My Cousin Vinny ~ Funny stuff

A Few Good Men

Here's a favorite scene from Primal Fear...Laura Linney was excellent in this movie also...

Oh, Laurie, great topic, I'm a huge, HUGE fan of courtroom drama...who doesn't love Matlock? My very favorite courtroom film is Anatomy of a murder - here's a Youtube video I posted... RIGHT HERE

Also From The Hip starring Judd Nelson is a great one in addition to many posted here.

p.s. ...And Justice for All.

Nearly any point in "Judgement At Numremburg" once the trial begins! :beatnik:

Then there's the trial sequence in "The Caine Mutiny," climaxing with Humphrey Bogart's "ball bearing" moment." :beatnik:

Fried Green Tomatoes has a good courtroom scene.

All of Me with Steve Martin and Lily Tomlin is screamingly funny and has a great courtroom scene.

And remember the episode of Seinfeld in which Kramer is a witness for Newman when he's trying to beat a speeding ticket? One of my favorites and it ends with a nice little bit of slapstick.
