Summary: Lawyers are soooooooo (EVIL!)
An interesting yarn about an up and coming lawyer who is recruited to join a major firm in the big city only to discover that the guy in charge is none other than Satan, played ingeniously by Al Pacino. Keanu Reeves plays the young lawyer star. He struggles with the pressures of his evil job and his crazed wife, who just can't handle that the other lawyers' wives are demons in disguise. This drives her a bit nuts. A great tale with many plot twists, this one entertains very well.

Summary: Al Pacino should retire
When's the last time Al Pacino turned in a subdued performance? This guy has screamed his way through the last ten years of his film career. The Devil's Advocate is no exception, with Pacino as an over-the-top Satan, and Keanu as his dull-as-a-stump protege. If you do decide to see this film, consider playing a game as you watch: See how many things you could change to make the film better. It's fun and it will keep your mind occupied during the draining and stupid story.
