It's the class everyman vs. heartless corporate America - and it's true. Greg Kinnear is good in the role, but despite the subject matter, the movie lacks weight. Still, it's a great look into the mindset of corporations and determination.

I liked it. It was an average movie. Nothing spectacular about it. But, nothing particularly bad about it either. It does have some good actors in it.

A true underdog film. This movie has a lot of passion. The story out weighs the movie but still a solid movie. Greg Kinnear gives a great performance. See It.

I heard this movie should have been made for TV?  Or at least the story was only average.  Has anyone seen this yet?
