This movie is a trite, loosely constructed, and stereotypical right down to the manaical money grubbing villain boss who'll do anything to keep the money rolling in. I hated it and thought the only redeeming qualities were Jack Lemmon and Wilford Brimley. Fonda is her usual self, which is to say flat, and the only thing interesting about Michael Douglas' in it is he is sporting a pretty neat looking beard. Absolutely nothing cinematically interesting, and the last shot of the film...pricelessly vapid. Someone (probably producer and costar Douglas) decided they were going to make a "real message movie" off the heels of a masterfully great film like NETWORK, but unfortunately the financing came thru before a good script existed. Truly a fart in the wind.
