Laws of Attraction is a romantic comedy starring Pierce Brosnan and Julianne Moore who have nothing but animosity for each other until extreme hatred leads to extreme passion. Daniel Rafferty is a rough around the edges and careless lawyer who despite his carefree attitude he has never lost a case. Daniel’s current case is between a recently divorced Irish rock star and his wife; while the divorcees have divvied up most of their assets a castle they both call home is still in dispute. That’s when Daniel meets his rival Audrey Woods, who like Daniel has never lost a case, and doesn’t plan to start now. Both lawyers must travel to Ireland, where the estate is located to gather depositions. Daniel and Audrey travel together and after a few drinks begin partying together. The next day the legal duo wakes up hung over and in the same bed and wearing wedding rings. It doesn’t take long for them to realize they are now husband and wife and they probably slept together during their drunken stupor. Daniel is not particularly troubled by the marriage and acknowledges that some attraction must have existed between the two, even if drunk. Audrey on the other hand is not so excited and they both agree to keep the marriage a secret until they return to America. However before returning home the couple discovers that tabloids in the US have already unearthed their spur of the moment nuptials. Rather than proceed with a divorce as planned the couple decides that a quick breakup may damage their high profile careers and so Audrey and Daniel agree to pretend they are a happily married couple until the case is over. But that is easier said than done and court arguments begin to resemble a marriage spat more than a legal debate, which angers Judge Abramovitz. Still amid this turbulence both will eventually have to admit that they have more in common than they thought. Laws of Attraction is rated PG-13 for sexual content and language.
