Glengarry Glen Ross 1992

Glengarry Glen Ross

Critics Consensus

This adaptation of David Mamet's play is every bit as compelling and witty as its source material, thanks in large part to a clever script and a bevy of powerhouse actors.

Movie Info

When an office full of New York City real estate salesmen is given the news that all but the top two will be fired at the end of the week, the atmosphere begins to heat up. Shelley Levene (Jack Lemmon), who has a sick daughter, does everything in his power to get better leads from his boss, John Williamson (Kevin Spacey), but to no avail. When his coworker Dave Moss (Ed Harris) comes up with a plan to steal the leads, things get complicated for the tough-talking salesmen.

Critic Reviews for Glengarry Glen Ross

All Critics (55) | Top Critics (9) | Fresh (52) | Rotten (3)

  • While the dark view of human nature and brutal dialogue might keep faint hearts from the film, the cast manages to individualize and humanize the pugilistic wordplay so that its expressiveness never veers into offensiveness.

  • For anyone who loves sharp dialogue, compelling characters, and a stinging social rebuke, Glengarry Glen Ross is not to be missed.

    June 10, 2008 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…
  • Mamet reveals his exceptional talent for writing almost poetic working-class vernacular, scores his major implicit thematic thrusts against the nature of the way business-at-large is conducted.

  • David Mamet's play about the wheelings and dealings of real-estate salesmen gets dedicated playing from a splendid cast, but gains nothing by the transfer from stage to screen.

  • Foley is as adept at managing this intensely psychodramatic material as he is handling an ensemble cast with the combined power of a runaway locomotive.

Audience Reviews for Glengarry Glen Ross

    Glengarry Glen Ross is the type of movie where if you enjoy it once then you will enjoy watching it again. Why? It has excellent dialogue and acting, which do not get used up in one viewing (vs. special effects or plot twists). Jack Lemmon gives a stand-out performance, great characterization and reactions. This is a film you will want to view since it may become one of your all-time favorites.

    I would've appreciated it more if I saw it as a play instead of as a film. Still, the actors were all superb especially Al Pacino.

    Falls on the better end of stage-to-film adaptations, because it's expansion of and changes to the source material all feel appropriate (The addition of the Baldwin character was a great idea). It's interesting to see a film from the 90s where Pacino isn't giving the most showy performance.

    I was talking to a savvy old tech salesman on a rainy day in a Central Florida alcohol rehab when the conversation veered (as it always does with me) to film and this was the one that energized the life into him. He quoted the dialogue as if it were Bible. I had only heard of it years ago ... The cinematic equivalent of Baseball's All Star game, big stars lean big-time into the pitches thrown them in David Mamet's introspective look at the possible underbelly of "nice guy" sales people. Everybody gets a hit, a big play, and a grand time is had by all in this afternoon's entertainment vehicle very worthy of re-watching. Always Be Closing.
