Quotes

Mr. Gartin: My grandfather built this bank on sweat and steel, not bullshit and nepotism. He put the bank first, and so I do too. Now, today is Thursday, consider Friday your last day. You're fired.
David Walsh: That means no bonus, no benefits?
Mr. Gartin: No shit! I'd like to say I'm sorry, but I'm not.

Entertaining throughout!
8 July 2004 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I wasn't expecting too much with this one, but was pleasantly surprised and thoroughly enjoyed it. Great to see a movie go in a direction that is not expected, and if anyone tells you this movie is predictable, they are more than likely lying. Matt Dillon has turned into a solid actor these days, without being the marquee attraction of some lesser actors.

Applegate and Zahn also add some weight to the movie, and a must see confrontation with the boss is a highlight (who wouldn't want to do that). Highly recommended, if not at the cinema it will make a great Sunday night in on DVD!
