Here's a tip, kids: if you're embezzling millions of dollars from your own company, it's probably unwise to draw undue attention to yourself. For example, don't go to the FBI and volunteer to be a whistleblower. That, however, is exactly what Mark Whitacre (Matt Damon
) does in Steven Soderbergh
's The Informant!
, a farcical tale of corporate intrigue that features one of the most deluded, incompetent white-collar criminals in all of cinema. The icing on the cake: while lying to the feds and ratting out his colleagues, Whitacre still hoped to be promoted to CEO.
