Cheesy T.V. Fodder
2 January 1999 | by See all my reviews

One of the worst pieces of drivel I have seen. Can a concept get cheesier than a motor cycle riding attorney trying to save a retarded man on death row? It's as though the filmmakers have no concept that drama should explore shades of grey rather than limiting its portrayal to these black and white, outdated conceptions of morality.
