Storyline

Upon graduation from college with a business degree, John Issel is promptly hired by Helmes's company I.N.C. At INC, the one who gets ahead, does it by kissing ass, or over someone else's dead body. John keeps getting promotions, but cant figure out why. Actually management doesn't care about him, they hope that having hired him, his father, Senator Issel, will vote the way they like.

Really, a great move
14 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Why hasn't anyone given this a 10 ? Well, agreed that the beginning is the best, but I don't think the movie falls off that much. I agree that this movie predates the office space mentality that has made it so popular. This is a closet classic. The scene w/ Rick Moranis is probably the funnier than any one scene in spaceballs. Doesn't that count for anything ? The boardroom meeting is great, the promoting of a politician's son in order to get his favor is something that does happen all the time. This movie does make a mockery of some of corporate America, but its funny - so what's wrong with that? Unlike the previous gentleman's comments, there is nothing communist about this movie. So Watch it. "Black shoes only in this company, Mister"
