4.0 from 0 reviews

Two megalomanical multimedia tycoons set out to destroy each other in this black comedy. Lionel Powers (Byrne) wants to buy pro football's Tucson Titans and so does his arch-rival Julian Messenger (Kingsley). So there's bribery and blackmail and airing of dirty family laundry all over the place. No heroes here but occassionally some sharp satire.
