Brian Cruver, an ambitious 26-year-old who lands a job at Enron, is soon dazzled by the company's get-rich-quick mantra and rumors of million-dollar bonuses. As Brian assimilates with the Enron culture, spending sprees and wild corporate "gatherings" become the norm. But when Enron abruptly files for bankruptcy, Cruver discovers he's just a pawn in a failing game of corporate greed--one that made the rich richer...while the rest lost everything.

If you go in understanding that this movie isn't about Brian Dennehy's or Mike Farrell's characters, and is rather cliched in its moralizing, you'll have a good time.
And of course, Christian was excellent. He played a young college-grad who got caught up in the big leagues and big money and ignored the warning signs of pending doom; he was progressively horrible to his fiancee and finally see the big e falling. You had to get through the beginning of the movie but I actually liked it in the end. Worth watching. Well done, CK.
I think it's rather funny reading some of the 5 star reviews which are mostly from women pining for Christian Kane. Shannon Elizabeth actually looks a bit anorexic in the movie when compared to what she looked like in American Pie. She didn't look good.
It is not political, nor does it do justice to havoc Enron did to the world, but rather focused on a small group of people in one department and how it affected their lives, including buying more Enron stock as it was tanking because they were all drinking Enron Kool-aid. Don't expect a hard hitting docudrama.
This is a rather lame, made for TV type movie, which also focuses on how Enron ruined "the relationship." Mike Farrell (Alan Alda light) gives us a stinker of a performance as Ken Lay, clearly miscast for the role.
