Never quite catches fire...

"Well, there you have it, from Mark Whitacre, Ph.D. You know what the Ph.D. stands for, don't you? Piled higher and deeper."

While the marketing squad at Warner Brothers promoted The Informant! as a loony comedy set within the corporate environment, the trailers are in fact quite misleading. Rather than playing the material as a straightforward mainstream comedy, director Steven Sod... read more

A bizarre movie

I liked this movie but it is definitely not for everyone (my wife fell asleep for example...). There is a weird combination of styles which I found really intriguing and Matt Damon was just amazing. If you like weird movies, maybe this is for you... Anyway, I think it is definitely worth a look, if only for Matt Damon's impressive perfomance.

Description: What was Mark Whitacre thinking? A rising star at agri-industry giant Archer Daniels Midland (ADM), Whitacre suddenly turns whistleblower. Even as he exposes his company’s multi-national price-fixing conspiracy to the FBI, Whitacre envisions himself being hailed as a hero of the common man and handed a promotion. But before all that ...

"29.6. Laugh-out-loud funny story of a man (Matt Damon) trying to be a hero and expose an price-cartel that his company is running. Too bad that the Damon charachter is an complete idiot. Best use for voice over for a long time. "
