Rated R · 138 minutes · 1992

I'm usually a sucker for courtroom dramas, but Rob Reiner's highly mechanical 1992 feature, filmed by numbers from Aaron Sorkin's adaptation of his own cliched and fatuous Broadway play, kept putting me to sleep. A glib rookie navy lawyer (Tom Cruise) who has grown up in the shadow of his celebrated navy-lawyer father is assigned to defend two marines against charges of murdering a member of their platoon; Demi Moore plays a member of his defense team, and Jack Nicholson—who gets costar billing for walking through three short scenes—plays the hard-nosed colonel ultimately responsible for the death. With Kevin Bacon and Kiefer Sutherland.
