Legally Blonde

October 1, 2014 - 3:31pm
"You can't handle the truth!" I'm guessing there are few people who don't recognize that as the famous line hollered by Jack Nicholson in "A Few Good Men." Courtroom drama on the screen, whether in "To Kill a Mockingbird," "The Verdict," "Philadelphia" or even "My Cousin Vinny" is fascinating and makes a lawyer's life look pretty darn cool. The eloquent closing statements, the cross examinations, the surprise witnesses and the "gotcha" moments make the field seem awfully exciting. Even though I sat through a dozen performances of "Legally Blonde the Musical" (because my talented daughter was in it) it was still always a fun moment when Elle used her knowledge of perm hair care to nab the real killer. However, while they're fun to watch on screen, those thrilling moments aren't exactly representative of the real life of a lawyer. I never had the desire to go to law school, but my husband did so I kind of have an idea of how real life works.
