A “LEGAL REMEDY” for your Valentine’s Day?

OK, as we all head into this romantic Valentine’s weekend, why bother which “degree of grey” suits you best, when you can get those passionate juices flowing by just contemplating a bunch of lawyers in GREY SUITS?  Seriously, think about it… A quiet

evening.  You, your loved one. A quiet fire, a nice glass of wine. Who needs some silly romantic movie, when you have the option to watching one of The Top 25 Lawyer Movies as chosen by the American Bar Association a few years back?

Really, has Demi Moore ever looked hotter than in her JAG uniform in A Few Good Men? And is there anything more tender and loving than seeing Paul Newman haul off and cold-cock Charlotte Rampling in The Verdict?   OK, OK – maybe that’s not the most romantic fare, BUT — My Cousin Vinny, is #3 on the ABA’s list, and that really IS a fun date movie. Besides having some great scenes between Joe Pesci and Marisa Tomei, it has some of the funniest courtroom dialogue on film.

However, you decide to celebrate your love, be extra careful on the roads.  (I’d rather not have you call saying that your romantic evening was interrupted by someone who had “one too many” veering into your lane!)  Happy Valentine’s Day!
