Overview

The recent death of her father threatening to sink the family's highly-profitable manure business, a cosmetics salesgirl attempts to keep things running smoothly as a serpentine fertilizer rep plots a takeover from afar. When it comes to fertilizer, Rose's Manure Company is where farmers go to get the best quality product that money can buy. Mr. Rose built Rose's Manure Company from the ground up. Now that Mr. Rose has been committed to the earth, the livelihood of the company's loyal fleet of salesmen seems to be circling the drain. But while Mr. Rose's estranged daughter Rosemary (Téa Leoni) hasn't talked to her father in years, she's willing to try her best to keep the family business afloat. As Rosemary goes about turning foul into profit, however, a fast-talking fertilizer rep (Kyle MacLachlan) begins drawing up plans for a lucrative takeover. Unfortunately Rosemary isn't the most experienced businesswoman in town, and in order to ensure that Rose's Manure Company retains its upstanding reputation she puts her trust in the company's top salesman Patrick Fitzpatrick (Billy Bob Thornton). Sure Patrick can move manure by the truckload, but does he really have the business savvy to take on the most ruthless fertilizer rep in the region?
