Review: 'Glengarry Glen Ross'

All-Star Cast,
Lame Movie

In the mood for a good movie about real estate (as I was the the other night)?

Unfortunately, "Glengarry Glen Ross" isn't it.

Either a good movie, or about real estate (oddly enough).

Instead, the 1992 movie -- adapted by David Mamet from his Pulitzer Prize-winning play -- is about the cutthroat environment and high pressure sales tactics employed by the denizens of a nondescript boiler room (and the human costs of same).

Which would be OK, if most of the repetitive dialogue -- uttered by the likes of Jack Lemmon, Al Pacino, Ed Harris, and Alan Arkin -- wasn't variations on, "How the $%@! do you expect me to sell these $%#! leads?? I can't close these $%@&! leads. Give me some $%@#! good leads!"

And so on.

After about 30 minutes or so, it grew tiresome and I turned it off.

Alec Baldwin and Kevin Spacey round out the stellar-but-squandered cast.
