I've just been made Chief Executive Officer.
No shit. Congrats. Hey, we can leverage this for that Pacific Net job.
I thought you said they were about to go belly-up.
With all due respect, I wasn't talking to CEO material before.
Listen, I was a bit harsh on you before...let me buy you a drink.

Four words, this movie is amazing. I haven't seen Stockard Channing this good since Six Degrees of Separation. This is definitely her best performance to date. Julia Stiles was superb. I haven't walked out of a theater this pleased in ages. Although I have been a fan of Stockard since Grease, my real delight was the script. This is great writing. It's enigmatic and unpredictable, funny yet compelling. I tip my hat to Patrick Stettner. Who needs special effects, long months of filming and huge budgets, when you have such wonderful script and great acting. All shot in 23 days.
