It’s rare that a real-life trial draws the interest of strangers (cough*OJ*cough), because a court of law is about the law and legal procedure and proper decorum. That’s not exciting enough for the movies, so what we get are scenes that would not be tolerated in real life. Judges will bring the hammer down for shenanigans, as we see in a list at TVOM that contrasts movie court scenes with the way the scene would play out in real life. I am pleased that there is no criticism at all here for the implausibility of my favorite courtroom drama, Miracle on 34th Street.
