In this second trailer for The Lincoln Lawyer, Matthew McConaughey plays the finest car-based defender that money can buy. This time around we get an inkling more about the film’s plot and an answer to the important question, “Why a car?” The answer is simple: because offices suck.
McConaughey gets the case of his career when he’s hired to clear Ryan Phillippe after he’s been accused of imitating Charlie Sheen. However, as McConaughey learns, the golden boy isn’t as innocent as he seems. I love how the courtroom scene will undoubtedly play out.
McConaughey: “You need to confess.”
McConaughey: “It would be a lot cooler if you did.”
Judge: “Case closed.”
Bailiff cues up Rupert Holmes song and everyone parties in the court room.
