Based on a novel written by Andrew Neiderman, "The Devil's Advocate," starring Keanu Reeves and Al Pacino, tells the story of an undefeated Florida defense attorney, Kevin Lomax, who is recruited by a New York law firm. Little does he know that his boss and mentor, John Milton, is actually the devil himself. The film's title is a reference to the common phrase "devil's advocate," someone who takes a position for the sake of argument. The term was originated by the Roman Catholic Church, and was used during the canonization process, when the devil's advocate, a canon lawyer, was appointed by the Church to argue against the canonization of a candidate for sainthood and to scrutinize any miracles attributed to him or her. Al Pacino's character, John Milton, has the same name as the author of "Paradise Lost," the 17th-century epic poem. The film features some of this literary masterpiece's most famous quotations including: "Better to reign in Hell, than serve in Heaven."
