In the opening scene in the airport as the camera moves in through the passengers toward Julia Stiles from behind, the camera approaches from behind the left shoulder of a stranger and hits him hard enough that his head first snaps hard to the right, then bounces back to the left into the frame again just before he moves out of the camera's view.

I've just been made Chief Executive Officer.
No shit. Congrats. Hey, we can leverage this for that Pacific Net job.
I thought you said they were about to go belly-up.
With all due respect, I wasn't talking to CEO material before.
Listen, I was a bit harsh on you before...let me buy you a drink.
Martell XO supreme.

This could have been a very interesting film. Stockard Channing turns in her usual phenomenal performance, but even her formidable skills can't save this one. It begins as a fascinating character study of a woman at the top (Channing) with very little to show for it, and had it remained Channing's story, it might have worked. However, the very forced introduction of a vaguely threatening younger woman takes the script into an plot filled with implausible choices and sometimes laughable dialogue - at the very moments when it should be most dramatic. This film could have seethed with undercurrents and subtle sexual tension. Instead, we're hit over the head repeatedly with "tension" so overt it renders any chemistry between the two actresses absolutely lifeless. Too bad - this film could've had a good thing going.
