Storyline

'Every day is another day closer to the day I'll never have to do this again.' Five women, one restaurant, one night, one birthday, one breakdown. Then the phone rings. A famous actor is coming for dinner. I Really Hate My Job is the story of an evening in a café in London's Soho. As in so many jobs, nothing much happens - except laughter, song, rage, collapse, intrigue, cooking, lying, nudity, conversation, secrets, love, friendship, ageing, hatred, rat-infestation and the arrival of a movie star. I Really Hate My Job. Who hasn't said it? A career. It's what happens when you lose control of a car on a wet road and it slams into a brick wall. You might assume they're just three waitresses, one cook and one dishwasher but they see themselves as an artist, an actor, a lover, an author and a philosopher. Written by Anonymous

I can't say why, but I liked it
6 September 2008 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

I find the mark on IMDb really low for the quality of the movie. The characters were complex and the acting great. Maybe the problem was that the characters really were too complex. Imagine a classy diner where 5 women try to satisfy the whims of their high-paying customers, while fighting a rat infestation and each having emotional issues to deal with.

It is, by all means, a film for women. Men watching this might not enjoy the endless laments and the emotional way in which the characters deal with their problems. However I find that the roles themselves were well crafted: a boss who seems to employ every annoying management technique in the book and drive her employees insane with difficult requests, but underneath a nice person that fights to reconcile her job with her conscience; an unemployed actress, always acting superior, but underneath feeling that she has failed in her life; a hysterical writer that can't publish her book; a new-age type of girl who lives in the past and tries to fix everybody; a middle aged woman who wants to feel alive again.

This is it. It feels like a play, it has only 5 characters and a guest appearance of Danny Houston, it plays with your emotions, but it really has a more appeal to women than men. Good movie though, and it deserves a higher mark.
