Pushing forty with no "corporate skill-set", Clay enters the strange world of the Unemployable Interviewees of America. He soon meets others who share his plight--LIZ, who spent her youth traveling in the Peace Corp and now finds that experience digging wells in Bangladesh isn't exactly what corporate America is clamoring for; BOB a manufacturing engineer who lost his pension when the company went bust and now finds that 64 is too old to get hired as an administrative assistant and too young for a Wal-Mart greeter; and CHARLIE, who's job as a corporate hiring manager is so miserable that he only hires interviewees he hates because working at his company should be a form of punishment.

The main surprise I had with this movie was the dialogue. Just excellent. Very clever exchanges between Clay and the homeless guy, between Clay and his new girlfriend, between Clay and the interviewers, between Clay and his fellow interviewees.

Yes, the movie teaches life lessons at several levels. This is definitely more than your standard easy listening feel good movie. I laughed quite a bit to the sarcastic dry underplayed humor. No pie in your face stuff here.

Now I have to go see what other movies the writer/director have been involved with. Not often that I do follow up like this.
