Trivia

Contrary to the depiction in the movie, proxy contests for corporate control are invariably not resolved at a public company's annual meeting. Rather, shareholders are solicited for their votes by using proxies, giving either management, or someone opposing management, their votes. By the time of the annual meeting, virtually all votes have been cast, and the results are either known, or soon to be known once tabulated. The fiery speeches portrayed in this movie are rarely a device by which votes are determined. See more »

Goofs

When the envelope of the results is first seen, it is being handed over to the woman as a pink envelope. When she is reading the results, the envelope is yellow. See more »

DeVito can't miss
15 November 2000 | by See all my reviews

Another Danny DeVito triumph. He always gives a strong performance. An excellent cast including Penelope Miller, Gregory Peck and Dean Jones. This film welcomes you to the real world of business take overs and DeVito pulls it off convincingly. Clever dialogue and good pace make for an entertaining film. I rated this an 8.
