He cheats on his wife, arranges business deals by servicing his clients with prostitutes, and torches his warehouse to collect the insurance money, all the while paying empty lip service to his lost ideals.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A jolting drama, fueled by two stunning performances."
‑ Phil Hall, Film Snobbery
"Lemmon turns in showy, theatrical work that's appropriate to the not-terribly subtle film around him, but the whole enterprise is one that's best avoided..."
‑ Peter Canavese, Groucho Reviews
"Jack Lemmon won the 1973 Best Actor Oscar in John Avildsen's Arthur Miller-like sentimental melodrama, in which he plays a bitter down-on-his-luck L.A. businessman who feels cheated by the American Dream."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"A compelling drama about morality under fire in the life of a middle-aged business man"
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"A great film of uncommon truth."
‑ Chuck O'Leary,
