Nuremberg defense

(redirected from neremberg)

Nuremberg defense

A plea or legal defense strategy in which the defendant claims that their actions were solely the result of carrying out the orders of superiors and that, as such, they should not be found guilty of such actions. Refers to the use of such a defense by political and military leaders of defeated Nazi Germany in the Nuremberg Trials of 1945–46. Against the charge of unlawful murder during wartime, the staff sergeant's defense attorney put forward a Nuremberg defense, claiming that the killings were carried out under direct orders by superior officers.

Short runtime suggests just marginal potential for more such gigs, though bill is filled out by some of creator Albert Neremberg's Hollywood-cliche-spoofing TrailerVision trailers for fake movies.
But Neremberg's jokey pastiche plays out in exactly the short-attention-span mode he decries in modern media, and its catchall notion of what constitutes stupidity makes the film seem like an extended, scattershot search for easy laughs.
