What's a courtroom circus without a couple of clowns?
Charles Tuttle (Jeff Daniels, Dumb & Dumber, Pleasantville) is a mild-mannered, big-city attorney, sent to a small desert town a few days before his wedding to defend a cry-baby con artist (Rip Torn, Men in Black). He arrives to find his high-strung best friend, Richard (Michael Richards, Seinfeld), an out-of-work-actor, brewing up a bachelor party blast that soon turns Charles' brilliant legal mind into jello. Trying to do the groom-to-be a favor, Richard pretends he's Charles and goes to trial, giving the performance of his career while turning the courtroom upside down. Meanwhile, Charles finds romance in the arms of a beautiful waitress (Charlize Theron, Devil's Advocate, The Astronaut's Wife), who proves to him that there is no law against falling in love.
