Plot Summary

Judd Nelson stars in the 1980's dramedy as Robin "Stormy" Weathers, an ambitious young attorney who joins a staid Boston law firm, where he shocks his superiors with his unconventional courtroom tactics. Surprisingly, his exuberant behavior impresses his superiors, and Robin soon finds himself promoted to junior partner. However, when he is assigned to a high-profile rape-murder case, he is forced to reexamine not only his ethics, but also his career decision as he grows to suspect his own client's guilt.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: I don't know much about the law, but I know enough to assure you that "From the Hip" is completely implausible from beginning to end. – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, Apr 8, 2015

Still good after all this time

Truth be told, I had forgotten about this movie until I found it here on itunes. It is a fun, well crafted movie with a great cast. It has a few holes in it and I am sure whatever the suits made them leave on the cutting room floor back then would've been worth watching. Nelson is his usual solid self, Perkins is adorable with a wonderful supporting cast around them and John Hurt is menacing, scary and a blast. This is a fun movie - buy it!
