Storyline

Jessica 'Jess' Turner, the only female trader in a City firm, shamelessly cheats on her doting husband Patrick with her equally adulterous boss Michael Thompson to obtain early promotion and unfair bonuses. When the Turners chose to have a baby, Jess basically intends to leave it with a nanny after maternity leave. But the boys have decided to keep temp Tamara, promoted her former deputy Shafi Amid to co-team-leader and divided her accounts. Despite a lawyer's warning a trial would cost about the possible compensation and ruin her career anyway, she turns hostile on all colleagues and insists on formal proceedings against Thompson. The firm plays hardball too, no competitor will hire her. This egocentric attitude ends up estranging even her husband, but after a hesitation she pushes on to court. Written by KGF Vissers

Terrible Film!
14 January 2008 | by Abusimble1See all my reviews

This has to be one of the worst of the bad movies that is produced on television these days. I have however noted one commonality between TV getting worse and the rise of women directors. Women tend to make emotional "reality" based television shows. Also they lean towards making odd shows. Consider that many of the soap operas like Bold and the Beautiful and Days of Our Lives were geared towards women viewers. Hence the directors of those shows listened to female input. Because they knew women viewers wanted that sort of thing. However, every movie made now has a problem like this. If a male director makes it, he'll attempt to make the female characters big, strong, independent, macho, beer-swilling, able to beat up guys twice their size. If a female director creates a movie, she'll make the main characters all women and it'll be an emotional love roller-coaster story. Anyone notice this??
