A Shock to the System

1990R88 min

It's murder trying to survive among New York's business sharks – and that's just the solution for beleaguered Michael Caine in this dark comedy. Passed over for a promotion and unhappily wed to Swoosie Kurtz, the frustrated exec finds murder surprisingly easy – and effective. Elizabeth McGovern is charming as the other woman, with Peter Riegert as a corporate back-stabber.
