They were totally unqualified to try the case of a lifetime... but every underdog has his day.
When Rudy Baylor (Matt Damon), a young attorney with no clients, goes to work for a seedy ambulance chaser, he wants to help the parents of a terminally ill boy in their suit against an insurance company (represented by a ruthless Jon Voight). But to take on corporate America, Rudy and a scrappy paralegal (Danny DeVito) must open their own law firm.

This movie made me a Matt Damon fan all over again. I think i will need to have a small specific actor binge. Great movie about drive and passion for good in cruel surroundings.
