Movie Info

Two out-of-work do their best to find a job and make the rent in this comedy starring Godfrey and James Leary, and featuring Tiny Lister. It's been well over a decade since Jamal and Dex hit the audition circuit in search of that career-boosting breakthrough role, and neither has managed to land so much as an onscreen speaking role. Now fresh out of cash and facing eviction, Jamal and Dex begin pounding the pavement in search of a job despite a rather serious lack of experience, skill sets, and ambition. If they could just catch a break before the end of the day, perhaps these two lovable losers can manage to keep a roof over their heads long enough to land the audition they've been waiting for.

Audience Reviews for Unemployed

This movie was the worst movie that I have seen...maybe ever! On a rating scale this movie is definitely a [b][u]D-[/u][/b]! :rotten::down: The premise is ok, 2 unemployed actors trying to find work. But as for the movie itself, it was more than lacking in just about every other aspect! It seemed very gonzo in its direction. The movie looked more like a home video then a professional production. The acting was THE WORST PART OF IT ALL!! I had to constantly remind myself that this was not a you tube video, but an actual movie with paid actors and directors and editors! And someone actually PAID MONEY to produce this horrible waste of an hour and a half. I have seen better acting from my little brother's school plays! Not to mention the "made for tv" commercial breaks that they strategically placed throught the movie. [u]If you are not inebriated then you should not see this movie![/u] And if you are sober while watching it...it will push you to have a bottle of wine (or two) JUST to recover from the feelings of anger and irritation at your wasted money and time! :mad: Long story short - dont waste your money, and if it [b]IS FREE[/b] which is[b] MUST BE[/b] for you to watch at all...your time is more valuable!:down:


Ultra low budget, but it does have it's moments. The actors do try. Very uneven , but at least it made me smile on occasion.
