Warning: Fatal Movie Error. Plot and Acting Do Not Compute. In this whacked-out, wired world, Cruel Intentions' Ryan Phillippe is a computer whiz kid. He has got some hot programming ideas, an even hotter girlfriend (Claire Forlani) and a job offer from the largest software company in the world. But after working at his new gig for, like, a week, Phillippe senses that his nutty Bill Gatesian boss (Tim Robbins) is up to no good.
Things turn into a game of electronic espionage, with some business about deadly sesame seeds, a lot of ludicrous techno babble and double-crossing computer babes sending this flick into meltdown territory. Phillippe and Forlani do little to help--they move through the story stiffer than a PC motherboard. And while Robbins is a great psycho, he's better suited for classier roles. Take the movie's own warning to heart and "don't trust it" to be worth a byte of your cash.
