Beschreibung von Audible

If you're expecting the Spenser Tracy/Katharine Hepburn classic battle of the sexes, you'll be disappointed. But Adam Arkin and Anne Heche make this version their own. Married attorneys Amanda and Adam Bonner find themselves on opposite sides of an assault case, with Amanda defending a woman who shot her philandering husband. Heche and Arkin make this comedy brassier, faster, and less sophisticated than the original, without losing a laugh. This is a first-rate ensemble production with a polished supporting cast, especially Amy Pietz as the gun-toting wife, Marvin Kaplan as the droll court clerk, and Annabelle Gurwitch as the cheating husband's sweetie. The topping on the hilarious antics is the zippy 1940s' musical interludes.

Inhaltsangabe

A married couple's relationship is tested when they find themselves serving as attorneys on opposite sides of the same headline-making case. The fireworks displayed in the courtroom follow Adam and Amanda Bonner home, creating a wildly witty portrait of love and work. This story took its inspiration from a real court case. Based on the original 1949 "battle of the sexes" film starring Katherine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy, directed by George Cukor.
