The Devil's Advocate

Kevin Lomax (Reeves), a ruthless young Florida attorney that never lost a case, is recruited by the most powerful law firm in the world. In spite of his mother's disagreement, which compares New York City to Babylon, he accepts the offer and the money that comes along. But soon, his wife Mary Ann (Theron) starts feeling homesick as she witnesses devilish apparitions. However, Kevin is sinking in his new cases and pays less and less attention to his wife. His boss and mentor, John Milton (Pacino), seems to always know how to overcome every problem and that just freaks Kevin right off.

Revealing mistake: After a day in court for Alex Cullen, all the press and media run to the phone booths. Watch the dude who runs into the second booth closest to us. He just stands there watching the action, he doesn't use the phone. (01:34:50)

Trivia: Does anyone else notice the parallels between this movie and City Hall? They both have Al Pacino running New York City and his "right hand man" is named Kevin.

More trivia for The Devil's Advocate

Question: During jury selection, Kevin decides to have one of the jury dismissed, I believe, because of the shoes the jury member wore. What exactly do the guy's shoes have to do with anything?

Answer: The shoes showed him this man polishes them every day, also his clothes are custom made. That all means the look he has of a black thug is deceiving, instead he's a cautious, proud person they can't use in the jury. Just to add, Kevin knows all this because the devil (his father, spoiler alert) is giving him the talent to do it, not a logical explanation can be given why he dismisses these people.
