Movie was alright. Watched it on Netflix streaming on my Bravia HDTV. About a restaurant owner who losses his businesses and girlfirend...finds himself in the unemployment line looking for crappy entry level positions (been unemployed, can relate somewhat) in hopes of finding another career outside the restaurant business. Has a bit of comedy in it...but there are some slow parts in the flick. Could have been better if it was better polished.
This is basically a one-note joke about looking for jobs at the bottom of the ladder and not finding them. Some familiar faces from bit parts and TV can be seen here (Kurtwood Smith from 'That 70s Show'). I don't think there is any earth-shattering revelation or even any belly laughs here. Move along, move along. Just another film capitalizing on the recession thematic. We'll see a few more before this is done. Oh. Watch it if you want a few chuckles on the tribulations of the long-term dole-catchers. If you're that type.
A well done indie comedy that hits on a lot of real life issues. It's not side-splitting funny but that's because it's so real and it will hurt close to home for a lot of people...especially those 10% unemployed.
Although it's "real", it's still enjoyable and has some funny moments, it's not a depressing film by any stretch.
If you've run a business that's closed and had to go look for a job...THIS MOVIE IS A MUST-SEE.
Oh Instantly Streaming Netflix, you let me watch the most random, and often likable, movies. I decided to watch this because I like Missi Pyle and D.B. Sweeney and had never heard of this movie. This movie turned out to be entertaining and timely because of it's plot about job loss and being over-qualified for under appreciated/crappy entry level positions.
