Movie Reviews

"Beware the Furniture Movers"
Paul McElligott | Lake Forest, CA | 02/28/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Ah, a long forgotten cult classic from the 80s. Frankly, this was Judge Reinhold's best movie after "Fast Times" and if he'd made a few more like this, he might have avoided appearing in those Volvo commercials.

This movie takes about the same cynically detached view of corporate America as Blake Edward's "S.0.B." took toward the movie industry. The thing about this movie that bears attention is that, even if it is "just" an 80s farce starring a lot of actors who haven't done much lately, the issues it raises, primarily the offshoring of American jobs, are even more relevant today than they were then.

The cast, as a whole, is first rate. Judge Reinhold is the recent business school graduate courted by the massive INC Corporation for his Senator father's favors. As a result, he manages to get promoted repeatedly no matter how badly he screws up. He winds up doing the right thing just to stay alive.

Eddie Albert is the CEO who personally presides over decisions to disconnect the telephones of deliquient customers. ("The check's not in the mail. I own the mail.")

Jane Seymour is an icily ambitious executive climbing the corporate ladder on her back, as it were. Danny DeVito is another executive on his way down the ladder via the express elevator. Rick Moranis is the marketing executive who seems to be permanently connected to a blood-pressure collar. Richard Masur is Reinhold's deeply cynical and extremely stoned mentor and Don Novello turns in his Guido Sarduci threads for a chauffeur's uniform.

All in all, this DVD is well worth the bargain price they're charging."

"A cult favorite and my personal guilty pleasure. Richard Masur and Don Novello (famous as Father Guido Sarducci on SNL) are but two of the cast of characters that make this movie hilarious. Eddie Albert is fabulous as the CEO of INC who keeps in touch with the people by personally reviewing whose phone service should be disconnected for overdue bills. Don King steals the movie with his speech to the board of the directors. This is one of my all time favorite comedies."
THE true look into the bowels of Corporate America !!! | North Carolina | 08/19/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"A movie for the ages! An all-star cast that provides a dry, satirical look into what we all despise and yet tolerate in Corporate America. From lines like "the company giveth, the company taketh away..." to " you think I got to the head of this division because I'm a moron? NO! I got to the head of this division because...I...I...I'm NOT a moron". Truly a movie that did not get the ratings it deserved. It definitely rivals the likes of Blazing Saddles, Stripes, Trading Places, Caddy Shack, Spies Like Us, Fletch, etc. A must see if you've ever been employed by a company of 100 employees or more!"
Brilliant Comedy, very enjoyable.

"If you have ever had a real job, you must see this movie. My favorite scene is when Don King (yes, that Don King) and others are giving presentations to the Board."
