YMMV: The Accused
  • Nightmare Fuel: The rape scene.
  • Strawman Has a Point : The Chief D.A. tries to stop Murphy from prosecuting the spectators by pointing out that Murphy feels guilty ("I owe her") about failing to put the actual rapists away for long. Ditto: "You don't get to use this office to pay your debts!". He also doesn't want to waste taxpayer's money on a "sure loser". All of which seem like good reasons. When he threatens to fire her for, well, ignoring her boss, she threatens to sue the D.A. 's office, making her look even more like a "vengeful bitch" (quoting the film here) on a personal vendetta.
