I don't know if this movie is ever talked about on the forum, but I'm surprised no one even brought up 1986's Legal Eagles!

This courtroom comedic thriller was Ivan Reitman's followup to "Ghostbusters" and has three charismatic leads at the forefront (Robert Redford, Debra Winger, Daryl Hannah). While the film was successful at the box office, it didn't really live up to Universal's expectations especially when considered the huge budget for a comedy at the time ($40 million!).

Plus, it's got "Love Touch" by Rod Stewart and became a top 10 smash on Billboard. Any thoughts about Legal Eagles and has anyone revisited this in a long time?

I've never seen legal eagles Leo,your right it's not one that gets overly talked about a lot,just looked at the reviews online and it receives mostly very positive feedback!

I've just added it to my online rental list as high priority along with another 80s flick I've never seen - space camp.

One film I'm curious about with Robert Redford is brubaker from 1980,I'm sure I've seen it but remember next to nothing,anyone seen it?

Any good?
