The People Vs. Larry Flynt (1996)

THE PEOPLE VS. LARRY FLYNT is less than enthralling.  Both Edward 
Norton (PRIMAL FEAR) and Courtney Love are very good, but Woody 
Harrelson is harder to take after his mood (and accent) shifts in 
mid-film.  Nor are some of the major plot points entirely explain-
ed.  (Flynt finding religion?  What's that about?)  Still, how 
often can you wander down to your friendly neighbor multiplex and 
catch a bio of a self-proclaimed scum bag, hear ruminations on 
First Amendment rights, *and* get a peek, however mild, into the 
industry of porn?  Directed by Milos Foreman (AMADEUS).  (Rated 
"R"/130 min.)

Grade: B-
