Karly is a pharmaceutical sales representative. She sells pills to doctors. She makes lots of money. She has a company car. She has a nice fat expense account. But there's a growing pit in Karly's stomach. Something isn't right behind the scenes at big pharma. Based on the director's decade working directly for the industry. Read More Read Less

      J. R. Jones Chicago Reader A bad movie on a vital topic. May 11, 2006 Full Review Jessica Reaves Chicago Tribune Spectacularly lame dialogue, stilted direction, amateurish production values and a soundtrack that distracts from the film as a whole. Rated: 1.5/4 May 4, 2006 Full Review Luke Y. Thompson Los Angeles CityBeat of all the people affected by big drug company scams, do we really care about the ethical dilemmas faced by gorgeous salespeople? May 19, 2006 Full Review Mark Olsen L.A. Weekly While Slattery-Moschkau is obviously coming from a very earnest place -- a card before the final credits compares the annual budget for the pharmaceutical industry to that of her own film -- it doesn't make the overall effort any less clumsy. May 11, 2006 Full Review Michele Kenner Milwaukee Journal Sentinel This is an agitprop effort to get viewers to think about the side effects of one industry's profit motive and how that affects consumers. Rated: 2.5/4 Dec 15, 2005 Full Review Rob Thomas Capital Times (Madison, WI) It's when the film loses the laughs and turns into a heavy-handed melodrama in the third act that the film sputters. Rated: 2.5/4 Dec 8, 2005 Full Review Read all reviews
