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

Decent Try But In the End It Doesn't Work
24 April 2010 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

I Really Hate My Job (2007)

** (out of 4)

Five women find themselves working in a London café but each sees themselves as something other than what they're doing. The three waitresses, the cook and the dishwasher all see themselves as trying to be something (an author, a actress, etc.) they might not ever be. This is about as much art as an art-house film can be so an overwhelming majority are probably going to hate this thing. It never got a wide release in America and that's easy to see why as the subject matter and the way it's delivered really isn't going to draw much attention from viewings wanting more bang for their buck. There's a lot to admire about this film and I respect what they were going for but in the end I have to label it a failure. The film really doesn't have a beginning or an ending as we're pretty much thrown into the lives of these five people as their either falling apart or coming together. We hear them talk about their dreams and we hear them talk about their problems. Since we're dropped in the middle of this stuff we never really get anytime to grow with them and for me I never really cared for any of them. The way the film throws us into their lives was a bit mishandled in my opinion because it's almost like this was a sequel to a film that we'd need to see in order to follow the start of this movie. I know this was obviously the point of the filmmakers but for me it took way too much time to get going and by the time it did get going you were already bored and uninterested in what was going on. The actresses give pretty good performances with Alexandra Maria Lara being the main standout. Neve Campbell plays the actress/waitress and her nude scene probably got more attention than anything else in this film. The film and screenplay does a nice job at giving everyone their own identity and the actresses do what they can with the material but in the end the film isn't a complete success and I doubt many are going to stick with it to the end credits.
