The American Success Company Review

Extremely strange, The American Success Company gives us poor schlub Harry (Jeff Bridges), who's married to the boss's daughter but has absolutely no spine. Solution: He takes lessons from a hooker on how to be an asshole. And succeeds -- his marriage is reinvigorated and he turns things around at the office. He goes a little too far, of course, which is where the fun begins. Hard to find and more than a little confusing, this extremely weird entry from A Night in the Life of Jimmy Reardon director William Richert is worth a peek on late-night cable.
