The Pelican Brief (1993)
Sadly, this environmental/legal thriller (based on a John Grisham novel) isn’t about an unorthodox firm made up of diploma-wielding pelicans. Julia Roberts (as a law student) and Denzel Washington (as a reporter) are pretty good second choices, we guess.
Conspiracy Theory (1997)
Wild-eyed New York cabbie Mel Gibson thinks the government is out to get him, and lawyer Julia Roberts goes along for the ride. Get it, the ride? Because he’s a cab driver? Never mind.
