Adam (Spencer Tracy) and Amanda Bonner (Katharine Hepburn) are a happily married couple who are also lawyers. They are informed of the case of Doris Attinger (Judy Holliday), who tried to murder her cheating husband. Adam is the state attorney, while Amanda defends Doris. The case causes Adam to re-think his views on equal rights, and the Bonners' marriage to strain.
I'm more accustomed to courtroom dramas (12 Angry Men, The Verdict, etc.), but courtroom comedies? That's completely different. Tracy and Hepburn's chemistry is strong (much like in real life). The concept is original enough for me to like, and the movie had its moments.
My Rating: ****1/2
