Storyline

Slice-of-life comedic film about the "other side of Generations X & Y" - the non-Slackers (or people who work) - five friends from college, now in their late 20s, and their different attitudes towards their work and their personal lives at points of transition in their lives, both personally and professionally. Some are temps, some aren't, but they're all dealing with a workplace impelled by turnover and increasing corporate hegemony. Raised in a basically privileged world of middle-class America - and always told they could do and be anything - these characters are challenged both by having so many options, and by their quests for perfection. This generation is the first one that cannot live better than its parents: a job is no longer a life-long career choice. In today's world that pressures workers to sacrifice their personal lives for "success," the five learn that, although life is full of compromises, they can find fulfillment. ALLY works as a "long-term temp" to insure time for... Written by anonymous

Quotes

Arthur: What's it about?
Ally: Well... basically American youth culture, but it's the story of a few young people who are working and trying to choose what their lives are going to be like... I mean, we're the first generation who can't live as well as our parents...
Arthur: [laughs] Ally, you've got to hone your pitching skills, but let me have a copy of it. I'll watch it tonight, and we'll discuss it after I understand what you're talking about. Which I hope I will.
