Product Description

Product Description

Lieutenant Daniel Kaffee (Tom Cruise) is a Navy lawyer assigned to defend two men who accidentally killed a Private by asphyxiating him with a towel. Initially working out a quick and easy plea bargain with the prosecuting lawyer (Kevin Bacon), Kaffee is persuaded to investigate the case further by a determined colleague (Demi Moore). Together they take on the might of the army establishment, as the trail of evidence leads to the accused's commanding officer (Jack Nicholson).

From Amazon.co.uk

As Good as it Gets is one of the sharpest Hollywood comedies of the 1990s, for all of its conventional plotting about an obsessive-compulsive curmudgeon (Jack Nicholson) who improves his personality at the urging of his gay neighbour (Greg Kinnear) and particularly a waitress (Helen Hunt) who inspires his best behaviour. It's questionable whether a romance between Hunt and the much older Nicholson is entirely believable, but this movie's smart enough--and charmingly funny enough--to make it seem endearingly possible. --Jeff Shannon, Amazon.com

Astonishingly, Jack Nicholson's legendary performance as a military tough guy in A Few Good Men really amounts to a glorified cameo: he's only in a few scenes. But they're killer scenes, and the film has much more to offer. Cruise also shines as a lazy lawyer who rises to the occasion, and Demi Moore gives a command performance. Director Rob Reiner poses important questions about the rights of the powerful and the responsibilities of those just following orders in this classic courtroom drama. --Alan Smithee, Amazon.com --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This adaptation by Aaron Sorkin (he made up The West Wing) of his own stage play is a superb piece of trial by movies. When a young, somewhat out of place marine private is killed, apparently murdered by two of his comrades, the JAG corps send Lt-Cmdr Galloway (an, as always, somewhat wooden, Demi Moore), Lt. Caffey (Tom Cruise, earning his 1st Oscar nomination in the process) and Lt. Weinberg (the always watchable Kevin Pollak) to investigate. Along the way they discover conspiracy, cover up, and a sociopathic general (yes, that's Jack).
Nicholson's hardly in it, but he lights up the screen when he's there, he's so good it's scary. Cruise is more than watchable in his role of the showy lawyer maturing faster than he wants, and it's a credit to him that in the final showdown, he keeps pace with Nicholson, never being outdone or pushed off screen. The film also boasts fine turns from Kevin bacon, Kiefer Sutherland and the late JT Walsh, but they could have found a better actress than Moore. Also the character can be somewhat irritating.
Sorkin's script is fantastic, sharp, witty, and explosive at the very end. Right, let's talk about that scene. This is a truly great showdown, right down to the angry, sneering speech from Col Jessop (it comes right after 'You can't handle the truth!'). This is just a very watchable, entertaining and involving thriller. It follows the standard lines of a courtroom thriller, through the 'it's a hopeless case' starting through to the dramatic turnaround, but it at least has a small sting in the tail. Watch it now. Are we clear?

Cut out the final few scenes and this film would have been classed as a mediocre production. However, Cruise v Nicholson in the courtroom make cinema history. Its quotable, emotional and no matter how many times you watch it it is still edge of the seat stuff. Rarely has a film been so sucessful at fully engaging the viewer in the plot of the film. Converting others to the cause will be difficult as they may be reluctant to sit through one and a half hours of Cruise's character comfortably developing as a person. But the story does have the kind of links that you feel clever for figuring out yourself. The DVD itself is disappointing. The conversion isn't sharp enough and there is a lack of any extras at all. Extras don't infulence my decision to buy a DVD, but in this case it would have been fantastic to see how the original trailers were put together. Nevertheless, we have no choice in the matter; everyone should own this film. The market leader in the genre of military courtroom drama.

The story of the investigation into the death of a US Marine is brilliantly portrayed in this film. Undoubtedly one of Jack Nicholson's finest roles (as the much-feared Colonel Jessep) and justly supported by that of Tom Cruise who is brilliant as the young, Harvard-taught lawyer, Lt. Danny Kaffe, who simply wants to settle the case without entering a courtroom, but the determination of Lt-Commander Joanne Galloway (Demi Moore) ensures that Danny's job is not going to be a pushover! The court scenes are compelling viewing and the outcome is in doubt right up to the final scene. Anyone with a vague idea about military life will enjoy this film. There isn't a bad actor/actress in it!

Navy lawyer Lt. Kaffee (Cruise) attempts to defend two marines who have committed murder at an American army base whilst overcoming personal agendas

With its collection of a list stars and provoking a strong passionate controversial messaging Rob Reiner's courtroom drama may be mistaken for a film bid to win fans through it stars, but thankfully this is a thought provoking stab at rules and regulations when in war and doing national duty, and with some splendid performances and an array of fantastic settings, this is a very good picture.

Opening with a sensational formation of formality by soldiers in an orchestra and the mood and tone leads us into a political warfare as two soldiers are charged with conspiracy to commit murder on another solider. What follows are a heavy detailed investigation involving numerous witnesses and the big boss and this all comes together for one of the most recognized confrontations in courtroom film history.

"You can't handle the truth" and "You need me on that wall" are all perfect displays of the revolution of how America is protected and how the pressures and rules of defending a country go beyond niceties. And who better to make us all believe it than Oscar nominee Jack Nicholson?

The man from New Jersey has and always will be a scene stealer a charismatic actor and once more he sweeps the board with anyone he partners on screen. The smirk, the knowledge, the sophistication he simply generates it all and from all the films I have had the pleasure of seeing him in, he delivers one of his best in the climatic courtroom scene.

Tom Cruise leads the picture, giving as good as he gets from those around him.

Unit -corps- God- country

I like a good court room battle and this contains just that.

You somehow know that young hot shot layer Tom Cruise is going to come good in the end but we have to go down a windy road before we get there.

He takes on the case but has never been to trial before. He is taking on the military establishment in the shape of Jack Nicholson as the marine commander of Guantanamo bay.

Two marines are accused of murder of a fellow marine but they plead that they were ordered to undertake a code red which was to rough up a fellow marine who had stepped out of line.

The establishment closes ranks and deny they gave the order.

It has echos of the Caine Mutiny as the main protagonists and witness is a respected marine officer who the court is much more likely to believe.

We are given a taste of what the marine commander thinks of everyone else when he tears Tom Cruise off a strip and calls him a pansy and does not know anything about, honor ,code and loyalty and the tough task he has to defend democracy. You can see that the colonel is a bit manic like Captain Queeq in Caine Mutiny. The colonel isn't on trial but his evidence is crucial

Demi Moore is the hardworking lawyer who does all the grunt work for the case and gives the ammunition to Tom Cruise.

The two marines one black and one white cannot understand why they are on trial as they only followed orders which is what they have been trained to do. No one supports the marines stories so they are on their own. Only Tom Cruise can save them from a dishonourable discharge.

The story builds and you cannot see how Tom Cruise can win as he battles with his demons as his father was a top lawyer.
