Man wants to see how the other half lives
5 February 2001 | by (Broken Bow, Oklahoma) – See all my reviews

A university president leaves the safe but dull confines of his college job to go out into the world for a new experience. After hiring out as a short order cook, and making a total mess of it, he is almost fired. The owner asks him if he really needs the job, and the professor admits he does not need it for financial reasons, but nevertheless, he does need the employment. Things pick up for him as he stumbles his way through a life that he it not equipped for when he meets and falls in love with a waitress. Different and well done.
