    What's the best courtroom movie of all time?

    Until recently, I thought it was My Cousin Vinnie.  But last week I watched Anatomy of a Murder, and that might have taken the lead.  What do you guys think?

    My Cousin Vinnie is my favorite, I love that dumb movie for some reason.   It is on the top of my list.

    I love both movies, but my favorite is still "A Few Good Men".

    Steveo -- It might surprise you to learn that my trial advocacy professor at Penn Law actually showed us part of a cross examination from My Cousin Vinnie (the part about the glasses) in class to teach us how to test a witness's ability to see the crime.  There's legitimately good lawyering in that silly movie!

    "12 angry men" and "To kill a mocking bird" are true classics and probably the best in my opinion

    I would have to say either A Few Good Men or Runaway Jury....and I lean toward Runaway Jury, such a good ending.

    I'm split between 12 Angry Men and Runaway Jury.

    Kramer vs Kramer for sure.  So sad for all parties.

    I like the movie 'A Time to Kill' i think it was based on a true story.
