Free Enterprise (soundtrack) is a 13-track compilation album featuring Duran Duran, released by Nettwerk Records on 15 June 1999.

About the album and film[]

The album is the soundtrack to the 1999 movie Free Enterprise which is a comedy/romance film starring Eric McCormack, Rafer Weigel and William Shatner. The film was directed by Robert Meyer Burnett and written by Mark A. Altman and Burnett. Free Enterprise deals with the mid-life crisis of two friends Mark and Robert, who struggle with their adult careers and relationship problems, all the while defiantly clinging to the geeky science fiction pop culture of their youth and seeking advice from their greatest hero, William Shatner. Shatner plays a campy caricature of himself as he works on a one-man musical version of Julius Caesar in hopes of finally being taken seriously as a dramatist and musical performer. Hip-hop artist The Rated R, joined by Shatner, provides the concluding musical number "Julius Caesar", a pastiche of famous lines from the play set to a rap rhythm.

The film's score was produced by Scott Spock and the movie features music by Duran Duran with the song "Planet Earth" and "She Sells Sanctuary" by The Cult.

The film is laced with references to past and contemporary science-fiction films and television shows, such as Star Wars and Logan's Run, with the most prominent being the original Star Trek, which is treated by the protagonists as a source of inspiration and moral guidance.
