Another fine film from Dan Cohen
25 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

''Corporate Affairs'' (''Ted's MBA'') 4 ½ (of 5 stars)

Dan Cohen, whose ''Diamond Men'' was a Cinematique hit, again upends the world of commerce in ''Corporate Affairs.''

Breckin Meyer plays Ted, who's promoted beyond his dreams, and certainly beyond his training or experience. But he's a quick thinker who solves corporate glitches as fast as his inept colleagues can create them around him. His computer work requires extensive travel, which leads to on-the-road trysts, unbeknownst to his wife. The software he's servicing is a house of cards. So is his personal life. Each time they start to tumble down, he reshuffles and emerges the victor. But how long can he juggle all of these conflicts without imploding? Writer/director Cohen masters sarcastic wit just as Ted earns his master's on the road to oblivion.

-- Film Critic Jeff Farance
