Calling All Classic Movie Lovers. I Need Your Help With A Movie Title

Some time this month I watched a movie. I came in on it when it was probably two-thirds of the way through. I don’t even remember what station I was watching when I saw it. I looked through TCM’s schedule and could not find it and it was too late to check on AMC. If you could help me figure out the name of the movie so I can see if it is available on DVD, I would appreciate it greatly! Maybe there should be an App for this!

Apparently there was a woman who was stirring up trouble with stock owners of a this particular company and the Board of Directors thought that by giving her a job as an executive would stop her from causing trouble. Meanwhile the CEO of the company had resigned and was now working for the Federal government. She was enamored the CEO and the board sent her to see why he was not awarding the company with any government contracts.

She went to Washington, D.C. but with her own agenda. She wanted to bring him back and take back the company. They went to court and lost but because of all the friends she made with the stockholders, the gave her the right to vote proxy for them in any corporate meetings. She wound up running the company and firing the Board of Directors.

Does anyone know who starred in the movie or what the title is? Even if it isn’t available on DVD, I can watch out for it to air again so I can see the entire movie. Any and all help is welcome. Thanks.

Think Twice Before Adding A Warner Bros. New Release To Your Netflix Queue!

I am a huge fan of the comic book hero. When VCR’s first came out my sister was able to get the Superfriends on video. I watched the Justice League on Cartoon Network and I look forward to the video releases of movies like Superman/Batman Public Enemies, Green Lantern: First Flight and Wonder Woman movies. Yet another superhero cartoon movie has been released on February 23, 2010 (Justice League: Crisis On Two Earths). The problem is it won’t be released until 30 days later through Netflix because of a deal Netflix made with Warner Bros.

This effects every Warner Bros. new release, not just for the kid in me, DC Comics movies. The Informant and The Box also were released on 2-23-2010 but won’t be available through Netflix until 3-23-2010. Not a big deal if you watch movies like you are supposed to, but for me with a love of all movies, it means I have to now schlep myself down to Blockbuster and reopen my old account so I can see the Warner Bros. new releases on time or start buying movies.

There are more important issues in the world, he said as he grabbed his coat heading to Blockbuster. Superman, here I come!
