The U.S. government decides to go after an agri-business giant with a price-fixing accusation based on the evidence submitted by their star witness, vice president turned informant Mark Whitacre. The FBI needs evidence, so Whitacre eagerly agrees to wear a wire and carry a hidden tape recorder in his briefcase, imagining himself as a kind of de facto secret agent.

Great film about an offbeat and somewhat unhinged (or is he?) corporate whistleblower, based on the best selling book by Kurt Eichenwald.

Look out for superstars Matt Damon and Scott Bakula.

I laughed a lot while watching this even though it is sort of a sad and dark story. I've met people much like Matt Damon's character, and I thought he nailed his performance pretty well. I'm starting to really like Scott Bakula and enjoyed his performance too.

Not what I expected thought maybe it would be a comedy but is but isn't. Actually turned out to be a decent movie but must watch as It changes back in forth must pay attention

It was a strange film.. takes a while to understand "what is this guy doing?" Best to watch it twice.. It is hillarious (watching from the outside, of course) how Mark had people, esp. FBI running in circles... Mark is full of surprises and much imagination and intelligence..Bizarre man!

The plot is so outlandish that it is hard to believe that it is a true story. Matt Damon does an amazing job

My wife loved it. I fell asleep about 20 minutes in. Must be a good watch, but it takes decades to do and the dialogue is deadly bad. This must be one of those "I needed to do a movie and fill my contract and I have 15 days to start filming!!" movies.

What will Whitacre do next (in the movie)? I found the movie amusing and Matt Damon did a great job! (as always).

Mark Whitacre: [voiceover] You know that orange juice you have every morning? You know what's in that? Corn. And you know what's in the maple syrup you put on your pancakes? You know what makes it taste so good? Corn. And when you're good and help with the trash, you know what makes the big, green bags biodegradable?
Mark Whitacre: [to his son] Do you?
Alexander Whitacre: Uh-huh. Corn.
Mark Whitacre: Corn *starch*. But Daddy's company didn't come up with that one. DuPont did.
