Brilliant. Sounds like half the projects I have ever managed. Or worse, they just start a project without clearly establishing the project requirements then wonder why its taking so long, is over budget, and slipped its delivery date.

Lot of good character actors in here that I recognize from a number of other movies and TV shows. I'm going to have to rent this.



“Any man who tries to be good all the time is bound to come to ruin among the great number who are not good. Hence a Prince who wants to keep his authority must learn how not to be good, and use that knowledge, or refrain from using it, as necessity requires”.
