Storyline

Comedy about the wholesale pet supply business finds two veteran salesman trying to squeeze out a new kid hired to take over a retiring pro's lucrative route. Initially naive, the kid doesn't understand why his sales are drying up. What he doesn't know is that the other two are spreading vicious rumors about him including that he practices his golf swings on pet rodents and other absurdities. Eventually though, he becomes wise to their schemes and decides to fight back. Armed with the knowledge that Donovan is having an affair with Orr's wife, he sets off on revenge. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

My best movie of 2000!
21 May 2001 | by See all my reviews

I keep a running tally of all the movies I see every year, and _Suckerfish_ was my best movie for the year 2000. However, let me say that it's "just" a very good move (I gave it an 8/10), not a great movie -- it's wasn't a very good year for movies. Nonetheless, it's a very enjoyable movie. I took two other people with me -- one of whom had never seen an independent movie -- and they both enjoyed it quite a bit. I get asked about it a lot -- due to it being at the top of my 2000 list -- and I usually describe it as "a black comedy about the high-stakes world of pet supplies."
