Trivia

Contrary to the depiction in the movie, proxy contests for corporate control are invariably not resolved at a public company's annual meeting. Rather, shareholders are solicited for their votes by using proxies, giving either management, or someone opposing management, their votes. By the time of the annual meeting, virtually all votes have been cast, and the results are either known, or soon to be know once tabulated. The fiery speeches portrayed in this movie are rarely a device by which votes are determined. See more »

Quotes

Andrew Jorgenson: I want you to look at him in all of his glory: "Larry the Liquidator." The entrepreneur of post-industrial America, playing God with other people's money. The robber barons of old at least left something tangible in their wake- a coal mine, a railroad, banks. This man leaves nothing. He creates nothing. He builds nothing. He runs nothing. And in his wake lies nothing but a blizzard of paper to cover the pain. Oh, if he said, "I know how to run your business better than you," that would be ...

Excellent!
3 August 2000 | by (scotland) – See all my reviews

Everybody does well in this film. Danny De Vito plays the kind of character he normally plays. In fact, Larry the Liquidator is just a super rich Louie De Palma. Gregory Peck is his usual good upright self. The only other film I've seen Piper Laurie in is Carrie so it's something different to see her as a benign grandmotherly type. However, Penelope Ann Miller was the main reason I watched. She's a gorgeous lass and the film would not have been what it was without her. I just love the scene where she goes into Danny De Vito's office and the camera starts at her shoes and goes all the way up to her beautiful face and Danny goes "wow". I agree with Danny that she has a nice laugh.
