In this remake of the 1940 film with a similar title, Prehistoric man Tumak is banished from his savage tribe and meets pretty Loana who belongs to a gentler coastal tribe but he must fight caveman Payto to win her favors.
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 »

Kris. These are the pictures that Charlene was talking about just before she fell and died. I didn't call her that night and tell her that there was an emergency at the bakery. You did... on my behalf. You were going to kill her and pin the murder on me because you knew she was on to you, wasn't she? She knew you didn't go to Stanford. She knew you lied about having a family. And you knew that you weren't going to rise any higher here as long as Charlene was around.
I was going to ...

I found this video in an ex-rental shop, i had never heard of it and bought it for 50 eurocents. When i came home and searched on how people voted for this film. The average vote was not encouraging so i left it on the shelf for months. When i decided to watch it, it was surprisingly good. Not a classic and sometimes very predictable, but never dull. Good performances by the leading characters, especially Laura Flynn Boyle and Faye Dunaway. I rate this film 8 out 0f 10.
