Robert Axle (Kevin Spacey) is an arrogant infomercial mogul whose empire collapses after one of his products maims thousands of consumers. After 8 years in prison, he tries to rebuild his fortune, but must first reconnect with his estranged daughter (Camilla Belle), her man-hating roommate (Heather Graham), his boneheaded new employer (Johnny Knoxville), the ex-wife who squandered his fortune (Virginia Madsen), and the ruthless executive who took over his company (John Stamos). Can a man who's lost everything devise a way to get back on top?
