8. PAUL NEWMAN AS FRANK GALVIN IN THE VERDICT (1982)

An alcoholic ambulance chaser, Galvin eventually gets his shit together to seek damages from a hospital in a medical malpractice case where staff improperly administered anesthetic to a young mother, who then fell into a coma. Before that, though, he was just a drunk chasing ambulances, preying on victims for settlement money. As you can tell, we don't believe in redemption or forgiveness around here.
