Why Pacino didn't win an Oscar for the film, is be beyond me.

Al Pacino plays a lawyer, who eventually recognizes hypocrisy within America's justice system.

good social commentary

Thumbs up for Pacino and a great cast of other characters, well-acted, plus a good plot; thumbs down for the rambling script, the jogs between comedy and drama, the feeble attempt at a thriller, too many caricatures, and overdone "good little guy" vs. "corrupt powerful people and the state". This is Norman Jewison channeling Paddy Chayefsky, and falling short.

After a bit of a meandering first half, this one has some bite in the afterwards as a scathing commentary on the American legal system filled by mostly lawyers and judges who generally don't care about their clients or justice. One thing that is interesting is how the perception of choosing to be bald (Tambor's character) has changed from this time.

It takes some time to become interesting and it's hard to watch becuase it is unfocussed, yet the film manages to stay afloat thanks to Pacino and some message hidden in the muddle. The satire intended in this film is not properly utilized making it a bit hard to watch and enjoy it.

Some one-liners and quotable situations, as well as Al Pacino fully-committed performance are able to overcome Norman Jewison's uncertain approach.

a very good legal drama movie with some comedy and a very famous ending.

Good movie. Pacino was superb and perfect as usual. Jack Warden was hilarious and perfect. Lee Strasberg plays his standard old, Jewish guy. Sometimes I wonder if he just shuffles from movie set to movie set with the same clothes and dialog. The movie's message is a wide broadbrush that the entire US judicial system is corrupt, insane and unjust, starting at the top with the judges. Yeah, okay. Otherwise it's a good watch, funny and sad and upsetting, and Pacino is a joy to watch. And you can't miss that famous line "YOU'RE out of order....YOU'RE out of order...this whole COURT is out of order !!!"

Another 70s gem, and another exhaustingly energetic performance from Pacino's prime. Jeffrey Tambor bats clean-up, and he makes plenty of huge mistakes ;)

A spectacular court room drama with a wonderful performance from Al Pacino and at the time wonderful breakout performances from Jeffery Tambor and Christine Lahti. It is very well written with great directing from Norman Jewison.

A wonderful cast. And the story was a mixture of humor and seriousness. All while showing the ins and outs and even crooked parts of the law. And the people who are supposed to uphold those laws.

Top notch Pacino even if it's a bit melodramatic and tiresome.

Could say a total movie. Remind our duty on moral rectitude.

More direction less than anticipated

"justice is corrupted every where".

When it's good, it's very good. When it's bad... Well, you know the rest. There are indeed moments of great drama and dialogue (I think just as good as "You're out of order" are Pacino's last couple of lines as he's dragged out of the courtroom). But there are also moments where the dialogue is stilted, the acting (thankfully, mostly by actors in bit parts) falls short, the music doesn't fit, and the scenes don't belong. Better edited, this movie could have gained another star in my mind.
