Story


Mike Weiss (Chris Evans) is a talented young Houston lawyer and a functioning drug addict. Paul Danziger (co-director Mark Kassen), his longtime friend and partner, is the straightlaced and responsible yin to Mike's yang. Their mom-and-pop personal-injury law firm is getting by, but things really get interesting when they decide to take on a case involving Vicky (Vinessa Shaw), a local ER nurse, who is pricked by a contaminated needle on the job. As Weiss and Danziger dig deeper into the case, a health care and pharmaceutical conspiracy teeters on exposure and heavyweight attorneys move in on the defense. Out of their league but invested in their own principles, the mounting pressure of the case pushes the two underdog lawyers and their business to the breaking point.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..buff body, very much on display, and drug-induced megalomania fail to elicit much sympathy..”
by Ronnie Scheib [Variety]
“..or at least you see his point of view, going up against this drug-addled do-gooder who won't even settle the case when it probably is in his client's best interest..”
by Kirk Honeycutt [Hollywood Reporter]
“..there's some overly blunt dialogue and dead-end subplots that would have been pruned by more experienced filmmakers..”
by Lou Lumenick [New York Post]
