Jagged Edge

Jagged EdgeBBB.5

(out of 5)

While this film doesn’t offer a murder mystery much different from any popular paperback novel, the experience of going through the colour-by-numbers plot is fun.    is excellent as a criminal lawyer (in criminally tight miniskirts) who hasn’t handled a murder case in years when a desperate man () asks her to represent him. His wife was murdered in their home and he’s the prime suspect, on trial for her death and in need of a good lawyer. Close takes the case, eventually falling in love with Bridges but always sure to keep eyes peeled in case of emergency.  contributes terrific support as a policeman friend of Close’s who wants her to be more careful, and the script by Joe Eszterhas is a clever collection of twists and engaging courtroom dramatics.
