The First $20 Million is Always the Hardest

Overview

Hotshot marketing executive Andy Caspar (Adam Garcia) gives up his steady job to join a high-tech research and development center where he's teamed with three misfits, including socially-unacceptable Darrell (Jake Busey), to create a far-fetched and highly unlikely product -- a 99-dollar desktop computer. The company wants them to fail, but they succeed against all odds and come up with a PC that doesn't use a monitor or keyboard (it's holographic, and all of the memory is stored on an Internet server).

Overview

Hotshot marketing executive Andy Caspar (Adam Garcia) gives up his steady job to join a high-tech research and development center where he's teamed with three misfits, including socially-unacceptable Darrell (Jake Busey), to create a far-fetched and highly unlikely product -- a 99-dollar desktop computer. The company wants them to fail, but they succeed against all odds and come up with a PC that doesn't use a monitor or keyboard (it's holographic, and all of the memory is stored on an Internet server). A greedy competitor, Francis (Enrico Colantoni), sabotages their project and steals their idea as his own. Meanwhile, Andy's relationship with lovely neighbor Alisa (Rosario Dawson) hits the skids. Can Andy get the PC -- and the girl -- back?

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Daringly contemporary and dryly amusing, this satiric take on post-Internet-bubble-busted high-tech corporations is bolstered by an engaging ensemble and a wry script co-written by Jon Favreau (Swingers), based on Po Bronson's prescient 1997 novel. It doesn't hurt that it was executive produced by he-should-know-comedy Harold Ramis and directed by Mick Jackson, who seems more comfortable on this human scale rather than with disaster epics like Volcano. Production values are good, if modest -- the hologram effects are fairly impressive -- but the bulk of the appeal is derived from the lovable cast, the roller-coaster story, and the up-to-the-minute pop-cultural references. Audiences turned off by gross-out comedies will appreciate the intelligence behind this geek fantasy.
