10/17/2003 Archived Entry: ""Runaway Jury" = runaway movie"

"RUNAWAY JURY" SOUNDS LIKE THE MOVIE TO MISS THIS MONTH. Here's a call from blogger Russell McDonald to boycott this flick, which turns a John Grisham book about big, evil tobacco companies into a film about big, evil firearms manufacturers.

Never did understand the appeal of Grisham, whose plots rely on preposterous leaps of logic and illogic. Rottentomatoes.com rates the movie as ripe, not rotten, but the reviews it links to actually add up to "glossy but stinky" or "suspenseful but gimmicky."
