Critic Reviews for Price Check
A you-are-there slip-and-slide that follows a supermarket chain's pricing department exec whose life gets upended by a whirlwind new boss.
Walker finds a few fresh veins to mine, and some nice performances.
A hilarious Parker Posey provides her customary blast of brittle energy in "Price Check," an engaging corporate comedy.
Parker Posey cuts a ferociously funny swath through Michael Walker's "Price Check," a corporate comedy that tells you more than you ever wanted to know about the hypercompetitive world of retail marketing.
It never feels like Walker seems all that interested in pursuing any of these ideas once he's raised them.
Audience Reviews for Price Check
Ending was a little flat - I really expected a big comeback, but actually it went full circle to the beginning of the movie. Hard work, nice things, nice family, time poor. Parker Posey as Susan is the boss from hell - mentally unbalanced, driven, enough to do your head in, quite honestly. Watching Pete get sucked into her web was horrifying. I can see why this wouldn't be the most popular movie, but it's well done and I enjoyed the various characters and office politics.
"Price Check" belongs in the Bargain Bin. Parker Posey is the only remotely compelling character and the film's potential messages are diluted by ambiguity. Comedy genre? We'll need a "price check" on that....
Typical Parker Posey dark comedy she's been doing lately but I love her in any role. She was a complete b%*+ in this one.
