A retired Chicago fireman partners with a reggae singer to turn a seedy Caribbean nightclub into a resort for affluent tourists. A crazy comedy co-starring Rick Moranis, Peter O'Toole, Eugene Levy, more.
A brainless teen comedy, pepped up with a few moderate erotic scenes. The plot: Roy is jealous of Sigi, who attracts Nancy's attention, and has two clumsy guys demolish Sigi's father's ... See full summary »
Upon graduation from college with a business degree, John Issel is promptly hired by Helmes's company I.N.C. At INC, the one who gets ahead, does it by kissing ass, or over someone else's dead body.

Hi. My name is Pete Helmes. 30 years ago, I started a small company called INC Bearing and Tool, and with these balls of steel I built INC International. Now, we produce over 10,000 products, from a 50-megaton nuclear warhead to a creamer, nuttier peanut butter and a new, quieter, artificial heart. Every day at INC we're developing products that will improve your life, like Permalax, an all-new laxative implant, that relieves irregularity for up to 25 years with a one-step ...

Excellent movie for those working in large corporations
As the other reviewer says, this is definitely a gem of a movie! If you work in a 15000+ employee corporation, you will see what we mean.
Danny De Vito is excellent as a manager who has been forced to jump to his early fall from an office window; Don Novello as the car driver with a taste for Julio Iglessias; Judge Rheinhold playing Jack Issel is great as the son of a congressman; Rick Moranis as a PR head is also great especially with the delivery of the line "I love this business" as he is checking his blood pressure; as is Jane Seymour, offering the line, after making love to a colleague: 'I wouldn't be much if a screwed my way to the bottom."
Great movie all round. I specially liked the line "we make everything from toilet paper to nuclear power plants."
You will certainly enjoy this one!
