Inspired by actual events, writer/director Craig Zobel's sophomore feature Compliance examines the complex hierarchy of authority through the experiences of a teenage fast-food restaurant clerk who falls victim to a twisted practical joke. Becky (Dreama Walker) is doing her best to get through another tough shift when a man claiming to be a police officer calls to speak with her stressed-out manager Sandra (Ann Dowd). According to the man on the phone, Becky has just stolen money from a customer, and likely still has the cash on her person. When Becky denies any wrongdoing, the man on the phone insists that Sandra detain the frightened girl in the back room of the restaurant, an action that sets into motion a shocking sequence of events. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

It's hard to believe this movie is based on true events for the simple fact : who would actually do those things to someone and think it is the right thing to do or that they HAVE TO even if you were instructed to do so by a real COP?? The girl who plays the victim, Becky (Dreama Walker) wow her acting is soooo bad! Not one part of her acting made her believable and she put the bricks to a flick that was already a B rate. As for Ann Dowd...she reminded me in a way of Kathy Bates. She played the part of a stunned and naive restaurant manager quite well but still didn't save the flick by any means. The big "dramatic" ending with the cops made me chuckle...as phony as the rest of it.
