Additional Info

This brilliant comedy by the author of Vikings, Sorrows and Sons and The Incredibly Famous Willy Rivers dares to take a politically incorrect stance about successful women. Emily is a stockbroker who mixes it up with the boys and always comes out on top. She is as cynical and ruthless as any man in her position until she meets a caring, sensitive actor who doesn't fall for her manipulative ruses. This nice guy with no money sees the girl inside the ruthless yuppie who may or may not exist.
