Quotes

[Tom is on the phone speaking to who he believes is Curt, but he's really speaking to Brad]
Tom Bennett: Listen, Curt, I'm not saying competition is a bad thing, OK. I mean, certainly it's got its good points. I mean you don't want to turn out like 'Sadly I'm Bradley' or anything.
Brad: Sadly, I'm Bradley.
Tom Bennett: Yeah, it's pretty funny, huh?
Brad: Sadly, I *am* Bradley.

Edgy and Hilarious!
29 December 2003 | by (Mountain View, California) – See all my reviews

I had the pleasure of seeing this flick on a visit up to Canada. It's quite a hilarious portrayal of young professionals trying to find some sort of amusement within the dull world of modern corporate culture. It was supposed to have been released in the U.S. back in late 2001, but was postponed (canceled?) due to some of the content and the events of 9/11. Fortunately though, it is soon being released on DVD. Watch and enjoy!
