Lara Flynn Boyle,
A cookie company takeover has employees scrambling to make a case for continued employment. An executive's administrative assistant takes paternity leave, and he gets a temp who is too good to be true, doing tasks at a fast pace and doing quite a bit of creative work for the project. The executive starts noticing that all the obstacles to his climb up the corporate ladder are disappearing, including the death of some of his rivals. When his regular admin returns to work, his temp, who has made it clear that she wishes to stay with him, begins her own accelerated climb up the ladder, and he begins wondering if she was responsible for the removal of the obstacles.

The role played by Faye Dunaway was first offered to Diane Ladd: Dunaway and Ladd had both appeared in the film Chinatown (1974) in which Ladd's character impersonates Dunaway's. Dunaway was given the role as she was agreeable to a lesser fee than that asked by Ladd and also did not wish the star billing which Ladd did. See more »
Though the movie takes place in Portland, Oregon, one of the characters is listening to a Seattle radio station, which would not be available in Portland. See more »
I too turned this film on not expecting much...in fact as something to fall asleep to...
its not as bad as you might think
Tim Hutton plays paranoid pretty much the same as he did in 'Dark Half' and Lara Flynne Boyle does a fine job as the obvious 'crazy' whilst managing to hold up one of the most ridiculous hairstyles in years...and the movie still works as long as you think of it as a sub-Fatal Attraction thriller and not expect some novel work of cinema
Give it a go...
