REVIEWS

Review by Camillo Messina (posted on 17-Jul-2007)

The greatest corporate/executive/work movie I have ever seen. I wish my everyday job was like this movie. I fantasize about it all the time thinking maybe I can come up with some kind of scheme at my current job. I bought the DVD and found out from the menu on the characters that Richard Jordan had died in 1993 from a brain tumor. Very sad. I watch the movie all the time and substitute my bosses and upper management employees with the characters in the movie. I wish Howard Prescott was my boss and I worked at Pemrose Company. RIP Richard Jordan, you're the best. ****
