I spent 1/3 of this movie waiting for it to start, another third waiting for it to end. The middle was filled with vomit, diarrhea, and a wisecracking Tony Stark.
If you are expecting a courtroom drama, as I was, don’t waste your time. This is a family drama about family issues. It’s about a lawyer son desperate for his father’s approval, and that father just happens to be on trial for murder for a few minutes in the movie.
The scenes that actually take place in a courtroom with trial stuff happening are pretty good, but most the time the movie is too busy trying to be heart-felt and / or authentic to find much time for the plot.
I don’t really have much else to say about this movie. Billy Bob Thornton plays a guy who says ‘objection’ and stands up and sits down and paces back and forth and wears a suit. Robert Downey Jr plays himself, and may or may not have made out with his own daughter. There is lots of Bon Iver.
Boring, overly dramatic, hardly anything happened.
I wasn’t kidding about the vomit and diarrhea.
