  • There is devilish fun in this look into 1990s white-collar crime. But the jokes are the kind you choke on. show more

  • Matt Damon's old-fashioned, brilliantly calibrated character turn as a corporate schnook-turned-whistle-blower; and Marvin Hamlisch's retro-groovy score. For the movie's first hour or so, the pair of them together make for four-star entertainment. The last half hour, not so much. show more

  • Soderbergh takes a deadly serious news story and amplifies and colors it to the point of outrageousness. The results aren't always consistent, but they are undeniably compelling. show more

    SO GREAT! hahaha this movie is funny! Parts of the movie are kind of slow, but trust me, keep watching and it will be well worth it. Matt Damon\'s character is amazing, he does such a great job!

    Nothing funny here except the idea that someone thought this was funny.

    The movie was interesting, but what really blew me away was one caption at the very end. After embezzling millions of dollars from ADM and serving eight years in prison, after telling one lie after another to try to save his own ass, he's made chief operating officer of Cypress Systems, Inc.
