What happens when you're accused of murdering Jim Belushi? You call Keanu Reeves. That's what you do. It's the first call I'd make, I know that.
Last time time I saw Keanu play a lawyer was Devil's Advocate, in which Keanu sold his soul to the devil (Al Pacino) in order to make partner. Or something like that. This is more reality based and if it weren't for the cast, it would probably be a made for TV movie. That's not necessarily a bad thing. Somewhat related, there's been some pretty watchable John Grisham movies out there with awesome actors in them.
Are you interested in this movie? We know that the kid couldn't have killed his abusive father. That wouldn't be satisfying. Did Renee Zellweger do it? The filmmakers want us to think that, but I don't think so. It's probably someone played by a semi-famous recognizable actor who was in two small scenes previous to his unveiling as the real killer. I mean, that's how it usually goes.
Who do you think did it? Or did Jim Belushi do it to himself for subjecting us to years of According to Jim… ?
