Rupert Everett and Laszlo Kovacs prop up an ordinary film
5 August 2001 | by JuguAbrahamSee all my reviews

Everett's performance is great. He makes all others look like pygmies!

Kovacs, whose Hollywood films do not reflect what he had achieved earlier in his Hungarian films, comes up with classic overhead shots of people moving like ants in office lobbies. Kovacs is a delight to watch, even in the winter of his career.
