Bryan Lienesch76 - It'd be a lot better if everything outside of the legal drama aspect of the story didn't feel so generic.

Le Anne of Tinsel And Tine65.6 - If you follow me at all, you know that I just think Robert Downey, Jr. is an adorable, charming, intelligent, funny, irreverent, satirical, sexy, talented, reformed screw up, who's a bit full of himself, all which adds to the package. I can't say I've seen every single one of his movies, but I do adore him. Yet, I can assure you my assessment of his latest movie, The Judge, has not been biased by my long standing crush.

Sober Film Critic James Brown61 - Boasting a nearly two and a half hour runtime and never diverging from the legal drama playbook, the film is one long reminder that there's always a dud in the awards season.
