From the Hip
From the Hip ★★ 1986 (PG)
A young lawyer (Nelson) gets the chance of a lifetime when his office assigns a murder case to him. The only problem is that he suspects his client is very guilty indeed and must discover the truth without breaking his code of ethics. Nelson's courtroom theatrics are a bit out of hand, as he flares his nostrils at every opportunity. The movie is encumbered by a weak script and plot as well as a midstory switch from comedy to drama. 111m/C VHS, DVD . Judd Nelson, Elizabeth Perkins, John Hurt, Ray Walston; D: Bob (Benjamin) Clark; W: Bob (Benjamin) Clark, David Kelly; C: Dante Spinotti; M: Paul Zaza.
