Quotes

[first lines]
Dorine Douglas: [reading] At Constant Consumer Magazine there is but one constant rule: get the job done. This can be hazardous, however, when the laws of economics effect our workplace and threaten to downsize us. For those of you who cannot keep pace with such changes, be forewarned: you will be terminated.

User Reviews

 
I liked it for its campiness.
26 July 1999 | by kroboSee all my reviews

This movie is great for John Waters fans. It's incredibly campy. If you're looking for horror, you won't really find it here, though it is a bit gory. I believe that this movie was intended to be ridiculously bad. At the time I saw it, my friend and I were both temps and the over-wrought workplace melodramas and vocabulary really resonated with us. Carol Kane was great, and Molly Ringwald was as I've never seen her before -- a caricature of herself. I look forward to Cindy Sherman's next picture.
