Yes, Keanu Reeves is a lawyer. And, yes, Al Pacino is Satan (and a lawyer) in this law firm of the devil movie. Basically, Keanu comes to the Big Apple from Florida with his wholesome wife Charlize Theron in order to become the ruthless and rich lawyer he was destined to become. But things start to get pretty strange when he discovers that his new boss is, you know, actually Lucifer. Pacino is splendid in his over-the-top Satan impression while inciting suicide, sex, and scandal all around him…and then there’s the incest.
