Yeah, the book was basically a hit piece on the tobacco companies. Expect the film to be a 90-some-odd minute gun control commercial.
John Grisham is a comitted Leftist. He left the practice of law to write full-time, and there seems to be some rule in H'wood that makes it mandatory to make his books into movies.
Expect it to recieve critical praise, however, just like any Left-leaning film would.

Correct. Grisham was a Dem legislator in Mississippi prior to becoming a writer.

Per Dennis Miller:
Hey, get this. I thought we'd talk about the nine Democrats running for the presidency. I wanna get this commentary in now before this über neuftet quickly goes the way of the Tucker.
You know, the good thing about an empty-headed scrum is that nobody can actually suffer brain damage if they get kicked in the melon, and, trust me, when these guys get together it's like a Pez dispenser seance.
