Law in Popular Culture

How to make a legal thriller less thrilling (photo gallery)

When we challenged our readers in last week’s Question of the Week to come up with less-interesting titles for well-known legal movies, they truly delivered. We chose just a handful of the answers to make mockups of what those movie posters might look like.

Other popular themes that readers flocked to were Anatomy of a Murder (Anatomy of a Misdemeanor, Anatomy of an SEC Filing, Anatomy of a Junk Car Ordinance Violation); 12 Angry Men (12 Mildly Disgruntled Men, 12 Annoyed Dudes, A Dozen Average Folks, 12 Men Anticipating the Free Lunch); A Time to Kill (A Time to Bill, A Time to Yell, A Time to Misdemeanor Assault); and A Few Good Men (A Few Good Pens, Some OK Lawyers, Several Men of Various Quality). Do yourself a favor and go read the whole thing.
