Hollywood tort epics



DaimlerChrysler's Steven Hantler doesn't find them very entertaining: "It is telling that in the remake of the Cold War movie 'The Manchurian Candidate,' the new villain is Corporate America. In the original, you'll recall, the bad guys were part of an international Soviet/Chinese Communist conspiracy bent on taking over the United States. ...Just as the sheriff was always the good guy, so these legal thrillers are invariably told from the side of the plaintiffs' bar."
