23 minutes to learn what makes the corporate world tick
20 September 2002 | by (Colorado) – See all my reviews

If you think business decisions are made strictly on the basis of profit and loss, you need to see this short little film. Revenge, jealousy, greed and male-bonding drive most corporations into the ground. Unless you've got a good sales force, which is most likely based on, you guessed it, revenge, jealousy, greed and male-bonding. This movie is hilarious, sad, and very true.
