When an office full of New York City real estate salesmen is given the news that all but the top two will be fired at the end of the week, the atmosphere begins to heat up.

I hope everyone has enjoyed the first two episodes of FORCED PERSPECTIVE – up now on the site (download Ep. 1 HERE – download Ep. 2 HERE). Among the many films Adolfo and I discussed on the show, there are three recent films that I (still) have not given the proper “full review” treatment to – Horrible Bosses is one of those movies.
