Campbell Alexander's commercial "I'm Campbell Alexander. I have a 90% success rate. What can I do for you?" violates Rule 7.1 of ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct. Comment 3 of Rule 7.1 states a lawyer may not make statements that create an "unjustified expectation" that the same results could be obtained for other clients in similar matters without reference to the specific factual and legal circumstances, even if the statements are literally true. This applies to Campbell Alexander's statement about his 90% success record, which is a violation of the rules. See more »
Andromeda 'Anna' Fitzgerald:
When I was a kid, my mother told me that I was a little piece of blue sky that came into this world because she and Dad loved me so much. It was only later that I realized that it wasn't exactly true. Most babies are coincidences. I mean, up in space you've got all these souls flying around looking for bodies to live in. Then, down here on Earth, two people have sex or whatever, and bam, coincidence. Sure, you hear all these stories about how everyone plans these perfect families. ...

The movie was made from a book with the same name. It talks about the girl; name Kate, who has to suffer cancer in her early childhood. Kate has an older sister, Anna. Since the age of 5, Anna has had blood taken and put through medical procedures to help keep Kate alive. Her parents have been spending too much time and money on Kate's disease, and they have not put enough caring for Anna. Anna loves Kate. She understands the pain of her sister. Until one day, her parents want her to give Kate one of her kidneys. She feels so unfair, and she hires a lawyer. She finally sues her parents for the right of her own body. Her mother is upset, but her father understands. Meanwhile, Kate feels that her cancer is tearing the family apart. There are some light-heart scenes during the movie. The most impression in this movie is the time when the little girl, Kate, is losing her hair because of the chemotherapy. Her mother doesn't want her to be ashamed to everyone else, so she tries to encourage her by buying fake hair and getting her some types of hat to wear. Finally, she does shave her hair in order to look like her daughter. She is a strong and wonderful mother. She spends all her time to take care of her daughter, Kate. Kate is a great character who has been in painful all her life, but in her, there is some strength that always keeps her not to give up. She is little but her heart is strong. The movie touches viewer's heart scene by scene. After watching this movie, I decide to read its book. This is an amazing movie you should watch at least once in your life.
