“You’ve got more balls than a Chinese ping-pong tournamant.” –Val (John Leguizamo) to Mick (Matthew McConaughey)
Josh Lucas and Matthew McConaughey have never actually appeared onscreen together before. It had been entirely possible, up till this moment, that they were the same person, in a Jekyll-and-Hyde sort of way. Would this be how the universe ends, with parallel-universe versions of the same actor causing all of infinity to collapse into some hellish singularity?
I was unable to get into a press screening of The Lincoln Lawyer, so I’m off to see the movie at a cinema this afternoon — because you know how much I love Matthew McConaughey. I will report on it asap afterward.
Ah, the title makes it sound so elegant, so principled, so righteous — surely, this is a film about a lawyer with the honor and dignity of Abe Lincoln, right?
