Trial And Error synopsis

Lawyer Charlie (Jeff Daniels) is sent by his boss (Lawrence Pressman) to a small Nevada town to file a continuance request for mail-order con man Benjamin Gibbs (Rip Torn). Charlie's actor friend, Richard (Michael Richards), turns up to throw a surprise bachelor party celebrating Charlie's upcoming marriage to the boss's daughter (Alexandra Wentworth). When Charlie is too hung over to make it to court for the hearing, Richard fills in -- and must continue impersonating him for the whole trial.
