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.

Uneven and Flat Hollywood Gloss Searching for Relevancy
Slick Movie with a Message, Albeit a Role Reversal. It is a Competently Made Story About Corporate Intrigue and Sexual Harassment. None of it is Surprising or Thrilling for that Matter. It is Sort of Hollywood Gloss Trying to be Relevant.
It Might be Prescient in the "newly discovered" World of Workplace Power Plays Between the Sexes, but its Computerese and Techno-Babble Made Here to be Cutting Edge is Hopelessly Dated Out of the Box. That VR Thing went Absolutely Nowhere.
Michael Douglas and Demi Moore are Perfectly Cast and Donald Sutherland is in His Slime Mode that He does So Well and the Supporting Cast is Fine, Except for Dennis Miller (more on that later).
But the Movie is of Two Minds and Neither Comes Out Smelling Very Well. The Movie doesn't Stink but Considering the Talent Involved, Director Barry Levinson, the Cast and the Michael Crichton Source Material, it is Flat and Fatuous.
Note...In this Movie Dennis Miller tries yet another career move, from Comedian to Actor to Sports Commentator to Radio Talk Show Host, and finally as a Flunky for Bill O' Reilly. The Man just won't give up even after one failure after another. He is an Embarrassment to every field where He shows up. Maybe He should try the pasture.
