(R) 100 mins

Plot Summary: Jack Lemmon, Al Pacino, Ed Harris, and Alan Arkin chew the words of David Mamet‘s script (based on his own stage play) as a group of Chicago real estate salesmen vying for the best “leads” at a small firm that sells property in resort areas.

Director: James Foley

Additional Cast: Alec BaldwinKevin Spacey

Serious Jest:  (Don’t Bother)  I hate fast-talking salesmen.  I’ve had a few sales jobs, and although I was good at it, I hated doing it.  This movie focused heavily on sales techniques and the sales profession.  It seemed very authentic.  However, even the extraordinary cast couldn’t stop me from getting annoyed at 100 minutes of sales pitches about “prime” land in Florida or Arizona.
