Well done court room drama. Still can't believe how good an actress Cher is. Nothing great, but fun to watch.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis:
Dedicated public defender (Cher) battles a nearly hopeless case, representing a deaf derelict accused of murder, with the unexpected help of one of her jurors (Quaid). Entertaining film manages to override its many implausibilities, with Cher turning in a fine and utterly believable performance.
