    And I'm kind of pissed. I knew about the existence of this movie by name alone, and I'd assumed it had something to do with Abraham Lincoln. Like, the lawyer in the film (Matthew McConaughey) was very much like Lincoln, or used Lincoln techniques, or maybe was alive when Lincoln was, etc. Had I KNOWN that it referred to a lawyer who worked out of his Lincoln town car as his office, I'd have watched it way sooner. That is a faaaar more interesting sounding movie to me!

    Anyway, I saw part of it at the gym today, so I came home and rented it online. Dang, McConaughey is one of those actors who I always say I hate, but end up loving every movie he's in. This was a super good movie. You guys should check it out if you haven't seen it. Definitely a worthwhile rental.

    It's pretty damn good. McConaughey does make some good flicks. I dug Lincoln Lawyer, but can't say I enjoyed his Lincoln commercials though. :lol:

    If you haven't seen it yet, you should watch "Mud." That's my favorite thing from this recent string of good movies/tv shows with him.

    This is basically the movie that relaunched his career after an endless string of terrible romcoms. Deservedly so, as it's a really enjoyable film, and he's quite good in it.
