Category: Entertainment
F. Ross Johnson, the CEO of RJR Nabisco decides that the time is ripe to take over his own company and enlists American Express. This kicks off a tide of other firms swarming in to tender offers. The outline of the film follows the actual takeover of the RJR Nabisco empire in a tongue in cheek way.

Business with humor
Business with humor, nothing better. Great film that combines factually based 1980's greed with a humerus side. Loved it when R & D produced a questionable product, with a distinctive smell and taste

Factual events
I really enjoy movies that were based on factual events because they help to understand the mindset of those involved... and this is no exception

Entertaining Read
Extensive and well researched piece about a deal that defined a decade. Amongst other things, this really helps you understand how Private Equity came about, and why it works in the way it works. Entertaining read that takes you on a wild journey throughout.

Thoroughly Enjoyable
This movie is based on actual events but I assume the writers of this movie took some liberties with the story. That being said, I really enjoyed this film.

When I saw it a few years ago I didn't have any idea what it was about, I only saw some humerous previews. But I've always liked James Garner so I watched it and was pleasantly surprised.

It's a very enjoyable tongue-in-cheek look and the events during a takeover bid. I'm gonna have to keep an eye out for it so I can DVR it and watch it again.
