Movie Info

Hotshot marketing executive Andy Caspar (Adam Garcia) gives up his steady job to join a high-tech research and development center where he's teamed with three misfits, including socially-unacceptable Darrell (Jake Busey), to create a far-fetched and highly unlikely product -- a 99-dollar desktop computer. The company wants them to fail, but they succeed against all odds and come up with a PC that doesn't use a monitor or keyboard (it's holographic, and all of the memory is stored on an Internet server). A greedy competitor, Francis (Enrico Colantoni), sabotages their project and steals their idea as his own. Meanwhile, Andy's relationship with lovely neighbor Alisa (Rosario Dawson) hits the skids. Can Andy get the PC -- and the girl -- back?

It appears to have been modeled on the worst revenge-of-the-nerds clichés the filmmakers could dredge up.

The movie, directed by Mick Jackson, leaves no cliche unturned, from the predictable plot to the characters straight out of central casting.

It's also curious to note that this film, like the similarly ill-timed Antitrust, is easily as bad at a fraction the budget.

No way I can believe this load of junk.

The movie's thesis -- elegant technology for the masses -- is surprisingly refreshing.
