“Suspect” is a pretty standard legal thriller that uses a homeless guy as a way of being different. It was 30 years ago and Reagan was just reintroducing them to the public. The film focuses on two fixed cases and hopes that Liam Neeson’s performance is enough to distract you from the rather weak plot. Hell, the ending plays like one of the worst Columbo episodes ever. Still, it’s a bizarre late 80s throwback that a lot of people don’t remember. I’m only familiar with the movie because my grandmother loved it. So, 6 year old Anderson watched this a ton on Showtime.

The Plot Thus Far
Kathleen Riley (Cher) is an overworked Washington D.C. public defender who needs a vacation. Instead, she is assigned another case. But this is no ordinary crime, with no ordinary criminal. Lobbyist Eddie Sanger (Dennis Quaid) gets saddled with jury duty just when a critical bill is coming up for vote. While on jury duty, Eddie discovers evidence critical to Kathleen’s case and contacts her outside the courtroom… a violation of the law.
Bizarre evidence leads Kathleen on a dangerous trail from Washington’s seamy underbelly to the highest levels of government. And the closer she gets to the answer, the more her life is in danger.
