A serviceable comedy; uneven, but offers laughs throughout and doesn't make any serious mistakes

In the midst of all this running around Binder finds a lulling tone, thanks mainly to the quality of the performances.

It's Rickman who runs away with the whole film by running the gamut from teflon smoothie to desperate madman.

It's loaded with witty dialogue, and the use of jump cuts gives the movie a distinctive look and a harried, discombobulated pace that absolutely suits the material.

Warring tactics in and out of a London boardroom suggest a Molière farce with the characters and plot to carry it off.

"until you look in the dictionary and look up the word 'Fine' it means were fucked, ok fucked"

Hehe Alan Rickman !
I couldnt wait to get this, i imported it from america and even though it cost me loads it was so worth it!
It was funny, interesting and alan rickman looked so gorgeous!
The story was interesting and funny and really good probably better than what i thought !
It was about mike binder coming from chicago to replace john gissing but becuase john gissing finds out he messes about with him before they finally decide to join each other and fuck with the company!
A really good movie written from mike binder and really fun to watch!
Worth a watch! especially alan rickman gorgeously brilliant!
Alan Rickman at the end of the movie was fantastic at tap dancing, probably the most funniest and cutest thing to watch in my life!
