Susan Sarandon, the emotional center of the narrative, received a well-deserved Oscar nomination for playing a recovered alcoholic laywer who interacts with the boy as a surrogate mother and a pro.

Tyler Morning Telegraph (Texas)

An engrossing potboiler ... if you don't think too hard. But when you need a pot-smoking Lez Zeppelin-enslaved swamp rat-with-a-brain to plead your case, you call the pitch-perfect Susan Sarandon.

It's a successful frame-turner, no more, no less, and the pleasure we feel is every bit as mild and just as fleeting.

There isn't a trace of subtlety or intelligence in the far-fetched adventure.

It twists and turns in all the expected places, and almost never rises above the ordinary.

Almost every word Jones utters is terrific. The script is good, but his delivery is what makes it.

All in all, it's a mixed bag -- but enjoyable enough to please Grisham fans.

This isn't a masterpiece of suspense, but it has its moments and is capable of providing some light summer entertainment.
