A you-are-there slip-and-slide that follows a supermarket chain's pricing department exec whose life gets upended by a whirlwind new boss.

Walker finds a few fresh veins to mine, and some nice performances.

A hilarious Parker Posey provides her customary blast of brittle energy in "Price Check," an engaging corporate comedy.

Parker Posey cuts a ferociously funny swath through Michael Walker's "Price Check," a corporate comedy that tells you more than you ever wanted to know about the hypercompetitive world of retail marketing.

It never feels like Walker seems all that interested in pursuing any of these ideas once he's raised them.

[Posey] inspires. She terrorizes. Whatever it takes to get the job done.

Disjointed, tonally numb and short of laughs, this indie comedy hasn't got a fresh ingredient in it.

Posey, her attention divided up into slivers, is funny as hell, but she's also terrifying in her evocation of a kind of moment-to-moment PowerPoint existence.

Although Posey renders Susan's instability and dominance with gusto, the character's vulnerability and pain are manifest.

These conference-room banalities have been better explored elsewhere, and the effort here feels like a rough draft.

A workplace comedy that knows how to mine a substantial vein of situational humor.

[A] charming and slightly unhinged low-budget comedy.
