Chairman of the Board is a comedy movie released in 1997, directed by Alex Zamm, and written by Al Septien and Turi Meyer. The movie stars Scott "Carrot Top" Thompson as Edison, a struggling inventor who unexpectedly becomes the CEO of a large corporation after discovering a revolutionary invention. Edison is a surfer and a struggling inventor who always seems to come up with unique, crazy and bizarre inventions, like a motorized skateboard or a keyboard that sounds like a guitar. Despite his best efforts, he can't seem to catch a break until he meets a beautiful woman named Natalie (Courtney Thorne-Smith) who works for Armand McMillan (Larry Miller), a wealthy businessman. Natalie is intrigued by Edison's inventions and decides to introduce him to McMillan, who is always looking for ways to stay ahead of the competition.

Edison showcases his latest invention- a high-tech surfboard with an artificial intelligence chip, that can predict the waves better than any human. McMillan is impressed and offers Edison a job in his company, but he is hesitant. However, after McMillan has a heart attack, he asks Edison to lead the company as the new CEO. Edison accepts the job and moves into McMillan's luxurious mansion.

Edison's life changes drastically as he struggles with his new role, tries to battle the corrupt executives who work in McMillan's company and makes numerous adjustments to suit his odd personality to the corporate world. However, despite all his challenges, Edison remains dedicated to his company and refuses to let anyone or anything divert him from his mission. He ends up creating some success and starts to turn the company's fortunes around with his innovative and zany ideas.

Throughout the movie, there is a romantic subplot between Natalie and Edison, and their relationship grows stronger as they spend more time together. The two of them perform a thrilling romantic scene where they rollerskate to round off their successful date night, which ensures that the audience remains invested in their love story.

The movie has a number of interesting characters, including a group of board members who initially disapprove of Edison's operations and think that he is too unorthodox for the role of CEO, but gradually start to admire him.

With excellent humor and a high-energy performance from Scott 'Carrot Top' Thompson, the movie is engaging and entertaining. The film's jokes and gags are well executed and, although some of the gags may be a bit corny, they never feel forced or completely out of place. Additionally, his energetic personality constantly keeps the film fun and exciting as he delivers his zany inventions, including a motorcycle with a bathroom, fish bowl shoes and an alarm clock that shocks the user.

Overall, Chairman of the Board is a lighthearted and fun movie, that has Oliver and Hardy style of humor, suitable for everyone seeking some laughter and want to relive a bit of the 90s portrayed through a series of exasperating corporate events all while watching Scott 'Carrot Top' Thompson's antics.

Chairman of the Board is a 1998 comedy with a runtime of 1 hour and 35 minutes. It has received poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 2.3.
