In the new episode of Film Stories with Simon Brew, a pair of movies that hit big, both with difficulties behind them.

The Firm was the first of John Grisham’s novel to make the jump to the big screen. But notable changes were going to be made, and there was a bit of kerfuffle over the star billing on the poster.

Meet The Parents was actually a remake of a 1992 movie. At one stage Steven Spielberg and Jim Carrey came close to making the film. And much of the film still needed to be written when filming began.

Stories of both are told in this episode.
