FULL SYNOPSIS

With a script that is too anemic for the red-blooded actors featured here, this anorexic comedy moves slowly up and down the corporate ladder with the fortunes and misfortunes of several company men. Jack Issel ([[Performer~P107897~Judge Reinhold~judgereinhold]]) gets a VIP position at INC in the PR department (business-speak). Suddenly the corporation's shady activities come to the fore -- especially when a U.S. plant is set to close for a move south of the border where labor is almost free. Enmeshed in these tangles, Jack is hardly prepared to fall in love with the leading activist against the plant closing -- but he does. Meanwhile, a lot of other subplots quickly dispose of potentially budding villains like Stedman ([[Performer~P17602~Danny DeVito~dannydevito]]) the inside trader -- too bad. DeVito and [[Performer~P97444~Don King~donking]] (appearing as himself) would have made a great team. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi
