Storyline

With his company about to merge, a happily married and successful computer expert is expecting a promotion. Instead the job goes to a woman from another plant with whom he had an affair in his bachelor days. His new boss, not only dangerously sexy but equally dangerously ambitious, has climbed the corporate ladder by exerting undue influence on the CEO. She apparently tries to pick up where they left off but he just about manages to resist. This liaison is soon revealed to be part of her master plan to consolidate power and use Tom as a scapegoat to cover her technical misdeeds. As his position at work comes under increasing pressure he decides to file charges of sexual harassment. This is the last thing the company needs. Written by Jeremy Perkins <jwp@aber.ac.uk>

I wonder if Clifford 43, from Oz, may have missed the point.
23 March 2005 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

This is a psychological thriller, which neatly plots a few days in the life of an technical executive in a computer company and his interaction with his colleagues, all as ambitious as he is himself. The film improves on Michael Crichton's novel by showing us how manipulative modern management is, when the bottom line is a big bonus to the bosses. Donald Sutherland, is excellent as the Boss who wants an important merger to work. And he thinks he has the person to make it do just that - the Demi Moore character, equallly excellent in a difficult role. Michael Douglas (excellent too)finds himself sidelined,being unaware of the bigger issues at stake. The plot becomes complicated by his being sexually harassed by Demi Moore's character - an issue which upset The Feminist Sisterhood - and possibly lost the film support from female viewers? But the plots and counter plots are clever. The end is not signalled in any obvious way and the use of the advanced computer system is absolutely central to the development of the story. The plot could be used as a blueprint for any story about corruption; backstabbing; corporate malpractice & legal manipulation. Cast your mind back to the Arbitration sessions - watch the by-play of the two attorneys. This is powerful cinema. I give it 9.5.
