Robert Redford, Debra Winger, Daryl Hannah, Brian Dennehy
Universal; Directed by Ivan Reitman
Rated PG; 114 minutes; 1986
From imaginative director Ivan Reitman comes an entertaining story of law and love in a big city courtroom. In this sophisticated romantic comedy, Robert Redford and Debra Winger star as rival lawyers investigating fraud, art theft and murder as they work to acquit Daryl Hannah, a young woman who may not be guilty, but is far from being innocent. Sparks and laughs fly when the three characters of this odd love triangle heat up the big screen.
"A thrill-packed humdinger of a movie all the way...It is marvelous...intelligent, imaginative, funny and suspenseful at the same time."
Rex Reed, NEW YORK POST
"Robert Redford is terrific...LEGAL EAGLES rates a rave."
Joel Siegel, GOOD MORNING AMERICA
"LEGAL EAGLES is the perfect summer entertainment....It's good, calculating fun...the kind of picture people have in mind when they complain that they don't make movies like this anymore."
Andrew Sarris, VILLAGE VOICE
"Just when you thought that sophistication had vanished from the silver screen, along comes LEGAL EAGLES to gladden the heart and chase the intellect...with a sparkling cast, a well-crafted screenplay, sharp dialogue and a happy ending. Debra Winger and Robert Redford are the best combination since Hepburn and Tracy - the chemistry is terrific."
Bob Thomas, ASSOCIATED PRESS
"LEGAL EAGLES is a sophisticated, spritely, suspenseful, comedy-thriller done in debonair fashion with Redford, Winger and Hannah high-style charmers."
"I'm giving Robert Redford a '10.' If you love Robert Redford, that's reason enough to see LEGAL EAGLES. He's in rare form."
Leonard Maltin, ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT
"Debra Winger now demonstrates in Ivan Reitman's LEGAL EAGLES that she's one of her generations few first-rate screen comediennes...She's an original."
Vincent Canby, NEW YORK TIMES
"A delightfully giddy romantic thriller...zippy and wonderfully playful. Possibly the most engaging performance of Robert Redford's career."
Kathleen Carroll, NEW YORK DAILY NEWS
"A classy summer diversion...the 1986 equivalent of a THIN MAN movie of a Hepburn-Tracy sparring match. Refreshing as a glass of iced tea on a boiling hot day."
Robert Osborne, KTTV/THE MOVIE CHANNEL
