Glengarry Glen Ross : Movie Review

As described by Alan Arkin himself in an interview with Terry Gross on NPR's Fresh Air, this movie about corporate corruption and greed involving the Glenngary Glen Ross Corp. sounded, from their description, like corporate intrigue as someone, perhaps a fellow employee, steals a list of sales leads. Starring Alan Arkin, Ed Harris, Al Pacino, Alec Baldwin. .. .sounds like a winner. It is honestly the WORST movie we have ever seen. .. .and YES that does include the English Patient. It is no wonder you have no critiques prior to mine. Telling you that the theft occurs in the last 10 minutes of the movie will detract little from your 'enjoyment'? of this film, as I was told about the teft in Terry's interview and waited 80 minutes for something to happen. Our (my wife and myself) trips to the restrooms upon leaving the theatre had more suspense than this movie.
