50 Greatest Courtroom Dramas

50. Jagged Edge (1985)

The Case:
Lawyer Teddy Barnes (Glenn Close) is hired by Jack Forrester (Jeff Bridges) when he’s put on trial for the murder of his wife.

Only In The Movies: A number of fun, tried and true courtroom conventions fire up Jagged Edge. Not only has Barnes not practiced criminal law in a while but, naturally, she also falls in love with Forrester. Who says law’s dull?
