Andy, a successful marketing guy quits his job, because he feels disconnected with the values about work he learned from his father. He gets a new job at a top notch research facility, where he quickly makes a powerful enemy who makes him volunteer for a nearly impossible project: The $99 Personal Computer. He recruits the only available guys at the lab, three sociopaths. Together they really compile a revolutionary PC for $99, but then they become the victims of a venture capitalist and Andy's old foe from the research lab. Can he and his new friends find a way to overcome the problems?Written by

To the last hurrah. I can't tell you how jazzed I am. I don't care about the pay cut. Do you know how long we can live off top Ramen?
Ten cockroaches can live a year off a single postage stamp
Exactly. We'll be like the cockroaches. Totally unencumbered. I don't need that big apartment.
Andy, I think you missed the point of my little cockroach factoid. I don't want any part of your poverty experiment.
So you don't want anything to do with me without my huge salary?
Would you want anything to do...

It is sad that the reviews on this movie are so poor. Personally my wife and I thought it was very good. I enjoyed the movie and the concept of a 99 dollar laptop is nice. We are quite some time from a price like that, but one can dream. Anyway, I have learned to never let someone else's opinion spoil what could be a great movie. I really enjoyed the film and hope the reviews get better!!
