  • Everybody Get Footloose

    || 12-Jan-2011

    Footloose is a classic movie with a very catchy song. Under Texas Law, it also has a few criminal actions. Standing between two moving cars on a highway is undoubtedly unsafe and probably constitutes reckless driving. A person commits the offense of reckless driving if they drive a vehicle in a willful or wanton disregard for the safety of persons or property under TRC § 545.401. An offense ...

  • Never is an Awfully Long Time

    || 5-Jan-2011

    Watch the clip here. While "Peter Pan" may be a staple children's movie, there is quite a lot of illegal activity taking place throughout the movie. We will start with the "Lost Boys". Assuming they did not all just leave like Wendy did, they may have been abandoned. Abandoning a child under the Texas Penal Code§ 22.041 means to leave a child in any place without ...

  • Walking The Line

    || 17-Dec-2010

    While we all know Johnny Cash had a few crimes under his belt, this movie clip from Walk the Line only shows a couple of criminal actions. What would rock and roll be without the drugs and alcohol? Oh- and a criminal record. There is an insinuation of Johnny's rough childhood in this clip. A person commits an offense of injury to a child if he intentionally, knowingly, recklessly, or with ...

    Watch the Clip Here. Home Alone is an iconic American Christmas movie with an abundance of illegal activity. Kevin's parents may be guilty of abandoning their child. Abandoning a child under the Texas Penal Code§ 22.041 means to leave a child in any place without providing reasonable and necessary care for the child, under circumstances in which no reasonable, similarly situated adult ...

  • Harry Potter and the Judge's Chamber

    || 19-Nov-2010

    Watch the Clip Here. As the new Harry Potter movie comes out this week, analyzing a past Harry Potter movie seems fitting. This clip, taken from Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, shows many potential crimes. We will assume they were all committed in Texas in the normal "muggle" realm. Uncle Vernon or Harry may be guilty of the crime of cruelty to animals. Under V.T.C.A., Health ...

  • Y'all Think You Can Catch Me Now?

    || 12-Nov-2010

    Watch the Clip Here. Where am I to begin when it comes to the Dukes? First of all, there is no seat belt wearing in this clip. And for one of the more minor crimes they are guilty of, they are certainly guilty of not wearing a safety belt under Texas Penal Code § 545.413. A person has committed a misdemeanor punishable by a $25 to $50 fine when a person that is (1) at least 15 years of age is ...

  • One Hit Could Ruin Your Whole Day

    || 5-Nov-2010

    Watch the Clip Here. The movie, Pineapple Express, is centered around and full of illegal activities. Let us look at those crimes under Texas law. Since this movie is so named for marijuana, let us address that first. Under the Texas Health and Safety Code§ 481.121 a person has committed the offense of possession of marijuana when they knowingly or intentionally possess a usable quantity of ...

  • O Attorney, Where Art Thou?

    || 29-Oct-2010

    Analyzing this clip from the movie O Brother, Where Art Thou under Texas law, a savvy prosecutor would have enough to put everyone (except the kidnapped boy) away for a very long time. These three escapees are certainly guilty of escaping custody. § 38.06 of the Texas Penal Code states that a person has committed the offense of escape when a person in legal custody, pursuant to a lawful order ...

  • True Love's First Assault

    || 22-Oct-2010

    Watch The Clip Here. Snow White is a very iconic Disney movie. However, the actions in this clip could be perceived as not so innocent. First of all, Snow White was "asleep" due to the Queen's attempt to kill her via a poisoned apple. That would constitute as attempted criminal homicide. One commits criminal homicide when he intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly causes the death of ...

  • Leave the Gun, Take the Cannoli

    || 15-Oct-2010

    Watch The Clip Here The Godfather has got to be one of my favorite movies. While there are too many crimes to count in the Godfather movies, there are many you may not think of. For example, in this particular clip they may be guilty of failing to wear safety belts, murder, criminal conspiracy to commit murder, disorderly conduct, theft, and criminal conspiracy to commit theft. I know these scenes ...
