Want to win a nice sealed copy of the classic 12 Angry Men on Criterion Blu Ray?
Of course you do!

What do you need to do?

Come up with an amusing tagline for the film.Pretend it's a comedy!
Rudeness accepted.
Funniest tagline wins.Simple as that!

12 Angry Men, by Sidney Lumet, may be the most radical courtroom drama in cinema history. A behind-closed-doors look at the American legal system that is as riveting as it is spare, this iconic adaptation of Reginald Rose’s teleplay stars Henry Fonda as the dissenting member on a jury of white men ready to pass judgment on a Puerto Rican teenager charged with murdering his father. The result is a saga of epic proportions that plays out over a tense afternoon in one sweltering room. Lumet’s electrifying snapshot of 1950s America on the verge of change is one of the great feature film debuts.

Teddy, I'm a Scotch drinker - you know that. I just have the occasional brandy when I'm not drinking.
