We've seen this at least a half dozen times. The characters are fabulous. Robert Redford and Debra Winger are so good together. A nice murder mystery/legal case and lots of action, nice nice humor and light hearted banter throughout. The plot is great...not sure who-dun-it until the end. I like the way the two stars come together little by little. Great scene where the two of them cannot sleep and how each one copes. My wife uses the line "I'll pick the adjectives" on me all the time! Good movie.

The disc is unusable and worthless.

I thought I was buying a used product in ‘very good’ condition. However, when I tried to watch the video, it kept stalling and not playing maybe 20-30 minutes into the story. I ejected the disc thinking it might have fingerprints or similar that needed to be cleaned off — but it has a large area that appears to be some sort of abrasion that does not respond to wiping with a gentle dry cleaning cloth. When I can’t watch the entire video, the condition of that disc is not ‘good’ at any level of that description. I want the disc replaced with one that, if not new, is at least in ‘excellent’ or ‘like new’ condition.

Art Killer Mystery

It's a cheesy 80's flick, but fun. It won't be the best mystery you watch, but it is quite enjoyable. I might also be biased because I saw it in the theater with my Mom. It is a bit of 80's nostalgia.

Legal Eagles follows the unexpected case of Tom Logan (Robert Redford) being asked by Laura Kelly (Debra Winger) to help Chelsea Deardon (Darryl Hannah). The situation is further complicated by the fact that Logan learns how Chelsea Deardon came to be brought to court. Laura Kelly obtains a significant amount of information related to Chelsea Deardon’s case from Joe Brock (Brian Dennehy). Things become more dramatic when a confrontation occurs between Chelsea Deardon and Victor Taft (Terrence Stamp). There is even music from Rod Stewart involved in this film.

they get into high speed chase but stop the car to debate who should drive, and still find the suspect! stupid things like that make the movie cheap. Funny moments. Cute babes.

Slick, charming 80s comedic thriller
Verified purchase
The mystery is solid, twists and turns build character and plot tensions. Darryl Hannah's performance doesn't hold up at all, but Winger and Redford are perfect[ly charming].

Classic Redford at his best!
Verified purchase
If you love Redford, this is a must-see! The chemistry between Redford and Debra Winger is fantastic. And if you like New York, you're in for a treat - the film is shot in Tribeca, the Village and many other classic places. I first watched this film back in the 90's and I have watched it several times since. It is still just as good as the first time! Highly recommend!
