In his columns for The Jerusalem Report, Stu Schoffman has adopted this movie as his equivalent to The Horn Blows at Midnight, a personal failure to serve as joke fodder. And he says that he reminds his students what Sam Goldwyn said: "If you want to send a message, call Western Union." But the movie is a message movie, and not bad at presenting its message: clearly but without being browbeaten, the audience realizes that ethics are not as other movies like to make them seem. Unfortunately, Ricky Schroeder as hero looks more like the sort of person who finds that long division is not as simple as it seems. The other actors do all right, but there's no one to carry the movie.
