The guys are back to Cruis'n the World with Sydney Pollack's 1993 legal thriller The Firm. They talk about what a bizarre film it truly is, probably saved only by some of Tom Cruise's finest running sequences as he smokes a silken blonde baddie, Gene Hackman's wonderfully phoned-in nuance, and the various ways to distinguish one John Grisham film from another. Despite all of the film's obvious flaws, it features some amazing character performances from Holly Hunter and Gary Busey, and Lil' Tommy is on top of his game, making it an essential piece of his filmography.
