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.
