Another poor attempt by Hollywood to describe the tech industry.
23 July 2001 | by Slug-3See all my reviews

I am really surprised that this movie received as high of a rating as it did. After reading the reviews I wasn't expecting a great movie, but I did expect it to at least be somewhat interesting. However, I couldn't have been anymore wrong. It was horrible!

I love this genre when it is done right, but the Ivory Tower looked as if it were written by a daytrader who had just lost all of his money in the stock market. It's not surprising to see Kari Wuhrer playing one of the leading roles, since she nearly always plays a witless character in very bad movies, but why would you cast her here? Kari Wuhrer is a beautiful girl, but I've yet to see her play a character which displayed an ounce of wisdom and T&A wasn't what I was looking for in this flick.

I read some reviews which said I would like this if I had ever worked in the software industry. Well, I've worked in the software industry for several years and it didn't do anything for me.
