The Devil's Advocate (1997) So you're a brilliant young defence lawyer, a little wet behind the ears, and you've been offered the dream job at a top-notch city law firm. It's inevitable really, that the law firm is run by Satan and his minions.

Intolerable Cruelty (2003) The point and purpose of marriage is to try and squeeze as many assets as you can out of the wealthier party. Romance ... love ... all unfortunate side effects of proper divorce proceedings. Oh, and everybody eats berries.

A Few Good Men (1992) At the end of the day, you can't handle the truth.

Legally Blonde (2001) Getting into Harvard law school is as simple as sending the admissions board a video of yourself in a hot tub. The key to passing your subjects involves an ugly sweater, a perfect manicure and mastering the "bend and snap". Plus, court cases can be smashed through careful observation of key witnesses' dodgy perms, rather than their woeful testimony.

The Firm (1993) You're a brilliant young graduate, offered a dream job in a small but unrealistically profitable law firm. Of course they're linked to the Mob, but at least the managing partner won't eat your soul ... right? Right?
