It tries to say something about money, morals, selling out on dreams, etc, but all that flaccid dressing just doesn't mesh.

Posey is bravely unlikable and invested in Walker's script, turning Price Check from a mechanical comedic routine about office politics into something complex and occasionally dangerous. I wasn't aware she was even capable of this.

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.
November 15, 2012
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.

[Posey] inspires. She terrorizes. Whatever it takes to get the job done.
November 15, 2012
Disjointed, tonally numb and short of laughs, this indie comedy hasn't got a fresh ingredient in it.
November 15, 2012
You can usually count on Parker Posey. That said, it's a real shame to watch her admirable talents dry up in the easily forgettable Price Check.
November 14, 2012
Writer and director Walker posits a theory that unfortunately undermines the entire film: Casting the great Parker Posey as an offbeat character does not automatically make a film a comedy.
November 14, 2012
Posey, her attention divided up into slivers, is funny as hell, but she's also terrifying in her evocation of a kind of moment-to-moment PowerPoint existence.
November 13, 2012
Although Posey renders Susan's instability and dominance with gusto, the character's vulnerability and pain are manifest.
November 13, 2012
These conference-room banalities have been better explored elsewhere, and the effort here feels like a rough draft.
November 12, 2012
The script is teeming with informed jargon about the business of supermarket pricing, and with actors like Posey as its vessel, the dialogue rings with an unlikely blend of fascination and farce.
November 12, 2012
The latest stinging entry into the reality check stream of movies tackling the financial fallout of the Great Recession in one way or another. But too bad it's an entry into the stream of movies with buffoonish bashing of powerful women as well.
November 12, 2012
Posey's vivacious energy, mercurial moods, superlative sense of comic timing - all come to the fore in this tasty and dark little comedy about ambition and dreams deferred.
February 10, 2012
A workplace comedy that knows how to mine a substantial vein of situational humor.
