Ted Ryker is the top salesman in the New York office of a business machine company; the corporate stock lives by quarterly sales numbers, the competition is keen, and the economy may be in a downturn. Ted's company is marking time until a new product is ready - probably in a few months. Into the mix comes a new hire, a callow Midwesterner named Jamie, who's come East with his fiancée Belisa.

So, one day we're tracking this herd with the park rangers. Now, if you know anything about elephants, you know they eat up to a ton of vegetation every single day.

I just finished this movie and I found it very entertaining and powerful. It was one of those movies that if it had more exposure, it would be a modern classic or a film with a strong cult following.
I rarely write comments for movies, but his movie truly deserves great word-of-mouth.
I watch a lot of movies and was truly surprised at how good it was. I won't go into plot details but it is definitely worth watching. I haven't seen a movie this good in a long time, and I watch a lot of movies.
The characters had depth and the acting was very good. The story was unusual but blew me away after the movie ended. It is one of the movies that really gets you thinking afterwards.
I watch a lot of movies. A movie hasn't entertained me on so many levels in a very long time. This is not mindless entertainment that engages you for two hours and then you forget about. This is both entertaining for two hours but also an interesting layered story.
Please do yourself a favor and watch this. You will be pleasantly surprised and intrigued.
