As fine a 'revenge on the boss from hell' movie as the wickedly vindictive 9 to 5 (and as outrageous a satire on Hollywood as The Player).

This is a really funny black comedy that satisfies anyone's needs to ever beat up their awful, power-hungry bosses.

[Huang's] plot may be overwritten and the ending may be less than satisfying, but his eye and ear are right.

When Spacey goes ballistic, only to freeze the nitroglycerine in his veins a moment later, you don't want to look anywhere else.
