One of its writers, Ross Klavan, based the screenplay on his own experience, and it's his approach that makes the film worth talking about.

Beneath the rough vérité exterior beats the same slick, corny heart that has pumped blood (and money) through Mr. Schumacher's Batman and John Grisham pictures.
