Glengarry Glen Ross/YMMV

Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

  • Crowning Moment of Awesome: Blake's entire scene, performed with gusto by Alec Baldwin, is considered one of the great movie scenes.
  • Jerkass Woobie: Shelly "The Machine" Levene. In spite of the way we can see how sleazy he is by his sales tactics, he's such a sad-sack with a sob-story that we can't help but feel sorry for him.
  • Magnificent Bastard: Ricky Roma, who artfully manipulates a potential customer while riding his hot streak.
  • Misaimed Fandom: Not only is the film loved by the very Salesmen it sets out to destroy, but Blake's scene (Which is intended as characterising pretty much everything wrong with corporate America) is used a motivational tool in workplaces.
