Fracture? [Big-Time SPOILER Content]

Shelly and I treated ourselves to a rare, just-the-two-of-us getaway yesterday (Sunday) afternoon. We saw the movie Fracture. It was enjoyable enough, I suppose. But, here's the problem I had with it:



Am I really supposed to believe that this otherwise brilliant guy wouldn't have realized that double jeopardy wouldn't apply once the wife was dead (and "attempted murder" became "murder")? Really?!? I know more than the average guy about business law (had to learn it to pass the CPA Exam). But, all I know about criminal law has been learned through episodes of the various Law & Order shows, and even I figured that one out.

Oh, well.

Stupid screenwriters. They should have hired Write Procrastinator.

Thanks for the spoiler; I'll wait for the cable viewing.
