''88 Minutes'' is a 2007 thriller film directed by Jon Avnet and starring Creator/AlPacino.

Ten years ago, torture-murderer Jon Forster was convicted and sentenced to death after being testified against by forensic professor Jack Gramm (Pacino). In the present day, Forster is due to be executed at midnight. But then, several more murders with an identical modus operandi occur, and then, on the way to his class, Gramm recieves a threatening phone call telling him he has 88 minutes to live...
!!This film provides examples of:
%%* AssholeVictim: Guy La Forge.
%%* BadassBookworm: Gramm.
* CatchPhrase: [[spoiler:Lauren Douglas:]]"Tick tock, tick tock. You have [X] minutes to live." Pacino gives an IronicEcho version to Forster at the end: "Tick tock, tick tock, you have 12 hours to live."
%%* ColdBloodedTorture: The opening.
* {{Fanservice}}: While naked, Leah Cairns' character does a weird legstand while also brushing her teeth. Pacino's reaction is appropriately a mix between excitement and an unstated "What the hell?"
%%* GirlFriday: Gramm's lesbian secretary.
* KavorkaMan: Gramm, clearly in his 60's, seems to attract ''every'' woman on the set. Even the lesbian.
* LargeHam:
* NakedApron: Leah Cairns' character in the beginning.
* RaceAgainstTheClock: The titular 88 minutes Gramm has left before the killer is done playing with him and actually kills him.
%%* RedHerring: The movie indulges itself in this.
%%* SerialKiller: Forster.
%%* SmugSnake: Forster, and his proxy.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Plot threads and shady characters come and go without any full resolution.
