  1. SeemsLikeFun's rating of the film Swimming with Sharks

    Maybe deserves a 2 but I like a 90s office setting and a kill your boss story.

  2. Michael Peer's rating of the film Swimming with Sharks

    Two starts for Spacey. 1 for Del Toro. I've always been a fan of the film and re-watching it was a pleasant surprise. It's a $700,000 movie shot in 18 days and it shows. Huang is not much of a director but he did get the script and cast right, which is 90% of it. A must see for anyone working in the entertainment industry.

  3. Chris's rating of the film Swimming with Sharks

    Amazing, witty dark comedy - one of my favorite Spacey films.

  4. 849025's rating of the film Swimming with Sharks

    Tom Hiel's score is essential whether you bother watching this or not. Spacey begging for death foreshadows a scene released a year later in Se7en. For variations on a theme watch Spacey in American Beauty.

  5. the.deft.one's rating of the film Swimming with Sharks

    Following Altman's The Player, Swimming With Sharks presents another biting swipe at the inner workings of Hollywood. Penned by former insider George Huang, the result is a darkly comic thriller, intelligently structured with plenty of quotable moments. If anything it's perhaps a little over-written but it's wicked entertainment and Spacey may never have been better.

  7. msmichel's rating of the film Swimming with Sharks

    Huang's knowing and acerbic script still has the power to entertain. Spacey was never better than as Buddy Akerman the ultimate boss from hell. Whaley was great as the assistant pushed too far. Film failed at the box office but quickly became a cult item. 'Shut up, listen, and learn' became one of my fav film quotes for some time after seeing this. Though it took place in the film industry the story was universal.

  8. M****'s rating of the film Swimming with Sharks

    Really good writing. 1994 was a terrible year in fashion for men.

  9. Obient's rating of the film Swimming with Sharks

    Shut up, listen, and learn. Oh, and watch it. There are some great lines in this film. Superb acting by Mr. Spacey as always.
