Their mom-and-pop personal injury law firm is getting by, but things really get interesting when they decide to take on a case involving a local ER nurse, who is pricked by a contaminated needle on the job. As Weiss and Danziger dig deeper into the case, a health care and pharmaceutical conspiracy teeters on exposure and heavyweight attorneys move in on the defense.

@Tressa I'm pretty sure you win the award needing the least amount of words in a plot summary to get you on board.

Tressina Bowling said...

LOL!!!! It doesn't take much, and I love that Matt didn't even bother with a summary...just "with Mark Strong".
I don't care what it is, I'll watch it. Not many actors make me do that. But there are plenty that will completely turn me off from seeing a movie.

Christopher John (@Christopher2814) said...

Pretty soon Matt will just start writing "w/MS" and really cut it down.

I used to be that way with Johnny Depp until he started only taking roles where he plays a complete lunatic. I prefer him when he plays normal human beings (i.e. Donnie Brasco, Public Enemies, Secret Window, Chocolat).

The "turn me off" list is long and distinguished. Believe me.

Tressina Bowling said...

I'm the same way with Johnny Depp now too. I think he has a lot more range than he shows (nowadays), and it makes me sad when I see him play the same role over and over again.

I think he needs to stay the hell away from Tim Burton for like....a while!
