Critic Review - Toronto Star

Stebbings fills Defendor with humorous bits, comic treats dropped in quickly and without fanfare. It gives the movie a proper pace, well punctuated with laughs at the right time, and outrage and sympathy at others.

defendor is obviously being marketed as a comedy, a desperate attempt by producers, i would assume, to market it as something it is not (coherent); stebbings's attempts to make a more sympathetic character of harrelson by comicizing him just sends the movie in two opposite directions at once; same problem with running scissors; the punctuation may be good, but the story is b.a.d; this would be dramedy is as schzophrenic as its' lead; then again, fair is fair; i have not read your entire opinion; ciao.
