Erin Brockovich (Roberts) is a divorced mom desperate for a job. She bullies her way into a file clerk position at the small law office of Ed Masry (Finney) where her salty language, take-no-prisoners attitude, and scanty attire unnerve her co-workers. But that's just the appeal that Erin needs when she uncovers and investigates some shady corporate dealings that eventually lead to a multimillion dollar settlement against a public utility over contaminated water. Standout role for Roberts who's ably backed-up by the rumpled Finney. Based on a true story and yes, the real Erin is a looker who dresses every bit as provocatively as her screen counterpart.

This is one of Julia Roberts' better,newer movies. It's not like those late 80s and early 90s take-offs of 1940's romance thrillers where she'd always play the role of a woman screaming "I THOUGHT YOU LOVED ME!" at her man

This is once again,one of Julia Roberts' better,newer movies. She doesn't scream"I THOUGHT YOU LOVED ME!" at her man the way she always would in those late 80s and early 90s take-offs of 1940s romance thrillers.
