Movie Reviews

Fun, but not enough Brian Dennehy or Mike Farrell
DesiluTrek | Sterling, Va. USA | 08/20/2008
(3 out of 5 stars)

"For a movie about naked, corrupt greed that by rights should make you angry, "The Crooked E" is still fun because it won't let you forget it's a formulaic, cheesy TV movie. It's billed as starring Brian Dennehy, but he's really a peripheral character who shows up less than half a dozen times as a mentor of sorts for the main character, a fresh-faced, newly hired Enron underling. Dennehy elevates the movie every time he shows up, though. Because the movie revolves around the underling's ups and downs, Mike Farrell as Ken Lay is also mostly wasted in a largely two-dimensional role, giving pep talks to the troops about the stock even as he was dumping it.

If you go in understanding that this movie isn't about Brian Dennehy's or Mike Farrell's characters, and is rather cliched in its moralizing, you'll have a good time."
The REAL truth about ENRON is NOT in this movie
John M. Miller | Houston | 05/16/2010
(1 out of 5 stars)

"Since I began working at the company later known as ENRON before Ken Lay was working there and I was in the next room in 1985 when he got his job, then I feel well qualified to say that the ONLY part of this movie that is accurate is the term...SHREDDED and that is what you should do with this movie. Shred it. It does in NO WAY come close to tell the story of Enron. It is regretable that some of the good actors hired to portray this movie and now associated with this shameful attempt to tell the story of the greatest corporate crime in the history of mankind. The total loss due to the criminal actions of the executives of ENRON surpassed SIXTY-EIGHT BILLION dollar costing 24,000 people their jobs AND their life savings."
This was pretty good!

"Honestly, I think the more negative reviews are because the subject of the story is so painful to watch. Then again I watched this because I LOOVE Christian Kane. I almost didn't though because it was such a depressing and sad memory but acting-wise, it was really a pretty good movie.

And of course, Christian was excellent. He played a young college-grad who got caught up in the big leagues and big money and ignored the warning signs of pending doom; he was progressively horrible to his fiancee and finally see the big e falling. You had to get through the beginning of the movie but I actually liked it in the end. Worth watching. Well done, CK."
