Lucy (Demi Moore) is the egotistical megalomaniac CEO of Incredible Edibles, America's premier provider of edible cutlery. In her infinite wisdom, Lucy leads her staff including her long-suffering assistants, Freddie (Karan Soni) and Jess (Jessica Williams), on a corporate team-building caving weekend to New Mexico. When disaster strikes, not even their useless guide, Brandon (Ed Helms), can save them. Trapped underground by a cave-in, this mismatched and disgruntled group must pull together in order to survive.

Trivia

There have been several survival movies about a corporate tycoon leading their employees on what turns into a dangerous outing: into the great outdoors (initially trying to get them to work harder together). The made-for-TV movie "Pray for the Wildcats" starring Andy Griffith and William Shatner in the 1970's, and based on a true story is "White Mile" from the 1990's, a made for cable movie where Alan Alda takes his employees river rafting.

Delicious Satire
23 September 2019 | by ashishaguptaSee all my reviews

Corporate Animals is a modern day satire that may not appeal to everyone. If you have worked in corporate America for any length of time, then this movie is worth your time and money.

Being a satire, the movie is obviously not to be taken literally, since every sketch or scene in the movie is a metaphor. The script is excellent and there is a lot of good content.

Those of you who have watched "Welcome to the jungle (2014)" will recognize some similarity in overall plotline. The characters in Corporate Animals are colleagues on a 'team building' exercise with an activity instructor. Similar to "Welcome to the jungle", things go awry and the characters are thrown into an impossible situation that sets the stage for the rest of the film. The difference being that the characters in 'welcome to the jungle' are in a jungle on an island and here the characters are in a cave in the middle of the desert.

Importantly, Corporate Animals delves into several pertinent contemporary social and economic issues. For example, there is commentary on the so called 'trickle down economy' and what it really means to the average joe, and many many more.

I can't say more without giving away spoilers, so I'll just say that if you do or have ever had an opinion about Capitalism or Corporate America, then this movie makes for excellent catharsis for you.

Repeat viewing for a movie like this should be rewarding since I am sure I've missed several good jokes and references in the first viewing.

Ironically, everything in this sometime over the top satire could be factually true, except for the ending, which certainly is fiction ... it's a happy ending!

If there is a message from this movie, I guess it would be: "Dear Average Joe, Not all problems can be solved by a tax break; so break a leg."
