PREDICTABLE MURDER ROMP….

The other day, I was thinking about movies I’ve enjoyed over the years, and thought of this film starring Burt Reynolds and Theresa Russell—from the late 80s.

Physical Evidence was a flick that I thought would be fun to see again.  And it was.

My favorite parts were the interactions between the characters.  Theresa Russell portrayed a defense attorney named Jennifer Hudson, while Burt Reynolds was Joe Paris, the cop on trial for murder.

Watching the growing attraction between these characters as they tried to solve the case (in between trial scenes) was fun, if a bit predictable.

The movie was set in Boston, so I also enjoyed the street scenes, as well as the interiors of some really gorgeous homes, like the loft where Theresa Russell’s character lived with her very annoying fiance, who was materialistic and a bit of an obsessive-compulsive snob.

Lots of action, some violence, and a few thrill scenes, especially toward the end—all added up to a so-so movie that I’ll probably watch again, but it certainly wasn’t one of my favorites.  Not like I thought it would be, since back in the eighties I obviously had different tastes.

However, I decided that it deserved three stars.
