Before Michael Clayton, Tony Gilroy Wrote Awesomely Bad Movies

“Tony Gilroy walks on water” – Tilda Swinton in her Oscar acceptance speech.

But before his Oscar nomination for writing Michael Clayton, before the Bourne movies, way back in the crazy ’90s, Tony Gilroy gave us two of the most satisfying classics of guilty pleasure and bad dialogue the world has ever seen.


Slumber party staple The Cutting Edge (“toe pick!”):

And lazy Saturday afternoon festival of delicious awfulness The Devil’s Advocate (warning: this is the last scene, and there are spoilers, but it’s unbelievably awesome):

I’ve seen each of these movies more than 10 times. Tony Gilroy walks on water, indeed!
