The Temp

If this Temp were applying for a full-time position, she wouldn't get the job. Moronic, derivative, artificial and pointless are just the first adjectives that come to mind to describe this concoction [screen story by Kevin Falls and Tom Engelman].

If this Temp were applying for a full-time position, she wouldn’t get the job. Moronic, derivative, artificial and pointless are just the first adjectives that come to mind to describe this concoction [screen story by Kevin Falls and Tom Engelman].

Lara Flynn Boyle temps for Timothy Hutton, a junior executive at the Mrs Appleby baked goods firm in Portland, run by the sleekly ruthless Faye Dunaway. Job uncertainty pits worker against worker, but provides room for Boyle to slither up the corporate ladder through stealth and, depending upon what you choose to believe, murder. Boyle doesn’t disguise her interest in Hutton.

Tom Holland’s directorial style consists of making everyone appear busy by moving them around at twice normal speed and shoving Steadicams down every available hallway. Every cast member has been seen to better effect.
