Starring: Al Pacino, Jack Lemmon, Ed Harris, Alan Arkin, Kevin Spacey, Jonathan Pryce
Four real-estate salesman working for Mitch and Murray are constantly complaining about the bad leads that they get from the head office. Their boss, John Williamson (Spacey) expects them to perform even if the leads are weak, something which the salesman cannot seem to do. An arrogant officer from the head office comes down and shows them the premium leads aka the Glengarry Leads. If they are able to close the normal leads, its only then that they get the Glengarry leads. Veteran real-estate salesman Shelley Levene (Lemmon) tries to bribe John into giving him the leads and in return offers to share his commission. Meanwhile, Ricky Roma (Pacino) is closing a deal with a potential customer James Lingk (Pryce) at a bar and sees himself winning the Cadillac that the company is offering to the best salesman. Dave Ross (Harris) is trying to convince George (Arkin) that they should break into office and steal the leads and sell them to a rival company, although they both are not very serious about doing it. The theft did take place, but the question is, who did it and why? The movie doesn't really have the entire crime and mystery link. Most of the dialogues are small talk that don't add up to the movie story but add a lot of character. The movie focuses on the hardships that salesman face and how tough it gets for them to make ends meet. Performances are fabulous but a more over-whelming climax would have been preferable.
