Movie Info

College roommates Tim Gerrity (James Spader) and Peter Burton (John Cusack) seem as if they'll be friends forever despite their class differences. Tim comes from a privileged family, while Peter's roots are solidly blue-collar. But a rift develops between them when Peter pursues a political career with such wild ambition that he will go to any lengths -- including blackmail -- to get ahead. As the betrayals mount, Tim resolves to stop Peter's rush to power before it's too late.

    This movie has three of my favourite actors: Cusack, Spader, and Widmark. But I only got to see the second half of it on TV one day. It's full of political stuff I don't understand and don't care for, but like I said, I didn't get to see the whole of it. From what I saw it's not that good, but I did like seeing three of my favourite stars in a movie together.

    I was really impressed with how good the acting was in this. James Spader and John Cusack really worked well together. I can't believe Cusack actually pulled off being a villain, I always saw him as the nice guy, but he really did well. James Spader also did well as usual, but also a different character than i'm used to with him.

    John Cusack, James Spader, Imogen Stubbs, Mandy Patinkin, Richard Widmark DIRECTED BY: Herbert Ross Best friends from law school to election night, their friendship is sorely tested when one learns of another's betrayal. It was a good movie with great performances from Cusack and Spader. At times I found myself thinking that the roles should be switched around. So use to seeing Spader playing the -excuse the language- asshole, and Cusack playing the good guy. But in the end it worked. It got a little boring at times and seemed to drag a bit in the middle, but the ending was where it got really interesting. Especially the play-out of there friendship. So it's well worth the watch. Or you can watch it for the simple fact that I did. I am a fan of both the leads and it was good seeing them in a movie together.
