Chevy Chase, Sigourney Weaver and Gregory Hines star in Deal of the Century, a devilish satire of the international arms trade from writer Paul Brickman (Risky Business) and director William Friedkin (The French Connection, The Exorcist). In the absurdist tradition of Dr. Strangelove and Wag the Dog, it's an uproarious look at an industry selling big bangs for big bucks--and shouldering big responsibility for the current sorry state of global relations. If your laughter is a little nervous, you're beginning to get the point.
