Movie Reviews

Perfect casting!
Lori Houston | Texas | 03/02/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This adaptation of Roger Rueff's play does not add more action just because it is in movie format. While not an action/adventure flick, this movie packs some really dramatic interactions. Three men on a business trip, all with complicated inner issues, try to focus on their sales objective, which is to land the "Big Kahuna" as new account. The casting of this movie was inspired. Kevin Spacey, Danny DeVito, and Peter Facinelli work well together and ring true as the characters they play. Wonderful movie!"

"For any fan of Kevin Spacey this is a must see film. As a chamber piece it it snaps with excellent performances from all actors. As our characters come more and more sharply into focus the push and pull between the sense of doom or triumph becomes less and less about the achievement of their business gaols and more about their own self discovery, and how they will share these insights with each other. A must see for fans of films that focus on great dialog as apposed to action and FX."
Kevin spacey at his best

"Outstanding dialogue and very deep insight into how religion, whether muslim, christian, jewish or any other kind, can bring us back to the dark ages, unless of course it was God's intent to keep us forever in the dark (ages)"
