Storyline

Before Tony can get to work on the first day of his new job, he manages to lock himself out of his appartment. To get back in he uses the his new security pass, which resembles a credit card. The card becomes damaged when it is used to open his front door, and then causes mayhem at work when the main computer fails to identify Tony as the new employee. The high-tech building is run by computer, which interprets its programming as meaning; "destroy all threats". The BUILDING is out to get Tony. Written by Rob Hartill

Quotes

Linda Ferillo: [after CAS stops the elevator abruptly and is unable to make it go down with her access card] That's strange. The elevator is suppose to go straight to the bottom if there's a problem.
Tony Minot: [dryly] You know Linda? Your faith in this building would be very touching... if it weren't so damned dangerous.

It sucks but it's a guilty pleasure.
13 March 2000 | by (the Tower) – See all my reviews

Even though this film is really dumb and unoriginal there is a fun feel to it. Sides, you got to love a movie where a computer really hates Paul Reiser and tries to kill him. (after those damn phone commercials I don't blame him. Candice Bergen is still worse) It's great for a night were you and friends want to heckle movies. Enjoy this little cheese ball. I did.
