the finest “boss from hell” movie ever made
This was the story of my old boss, and since I wouldn’t act out my revenge I pop this in and thank the lord for envelopes and hot sauce. If I ever meet Kevin Spacey I will give him a big hug for his huge talents and then pop him one for playing such a bastard as Buddy Ackerman. No matter how many times I watch this my gut wrenches and I break out into a sweat, but with Spacey’s acting it’s not a problem.
Frank Whaley is a surprise……
and quite good in this role; I had not seen him in very many movies, prior to this. I became an avid fan after this movie; he is a very honest and self-effacing actor (Quite a rarity, these days!!!).
Many other reviewers have accurately stated the portrayal of the Hollywood studio system;Spacey’s character (who is excellent, of course). So I will delve more into Whaley’s character.
Guy is climbing up the ladder, and anyone who has worked in an impersonal corporate environment will relate, and find humor in this; the scene where Benicio del Toro tells him to take up smoking; (“You’ll need it in this place”)….also the scene where Kevin Spacey demands that Guy …”keep up to date on any hair replacement products”….
There are many great lines, depicting the superficiality and insane pettiness in many offices.
Michelle Forbers portrays a producer, whom Spacey has used before; (“Get your pretty little butt in my office”…Spacey says to her); today that may cause a lawsuit in the corporate environment;but it is what he was surely thinking; if not worse.
One of the more pertinent scenes is when Michelle Forbes is asking Guy ….”Why do you take his s – – -“; and Guy responds that…. movies have always been his reference point in life; he remembers his first kiss, etc., according to fictional characters and stories. I think this was a very interesting point, and could have been more developed into the story. Psychologically, many people relate to fictive personalities more than real ones; and it has been theorized by many media psychologists that even soap operas help people in everyday life.
Finally, Guy does get his revenge on Buddy, which I’m sure many of us have fantasized about; getting revenge on a vindictive boss/employer.
