The owner of a factory that produces flavor extracts, Joel Reynold (Jason Bateman) seems to have it all, but really doesn't. What's missing is sexual attention from his wife, Suzie (Kristen Wiig). Joel hatches a convoluted plan to get Suzie to cheat on him, thereby clearing the way for Joel to have an affair with Cindy (Mila Kunis), an employee. But what Joel doesn't know is that Cindy is a sociopathic con artist, and a freak workplace accident clears the way for her to ruin Joel forever.

    Judge is in the business of social satire, and his laughs can sting, but his movie is a comic salute to free enterprise. And, boy, do we need it now. show more

    Isn't an instant classic, but it bumps along agreeably. show more

    Affleck ought to do more quirky character roles rather than leading-man parts in action films. Bateman plays his low-key straight man/protagonist to perfection. show more

    I actually liked this film. Despite all the bad reviews probably coming from the same people who loved transformers 2. There wasn't anything phenominal about this flick, but that is what I liked about it. Just a charming little film. I guess I was in the mood ******** still better than most of the crap that is out there.
