After losing his restaurant, chef CLAY MAGUIRE must start his career all over--at the bottom. 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. Spurred along by the total lack of encouragement by his job counselor SAM, the self-serving "wisdom" of his homeless buddy NICK, and the most bizarre series of job interviews imaginable, Clay and his fellow ...

Enjoyable comedy about job seekers
29 July 2007 | by (Kew Gardens, NY) – See all my reviews

Seeing this film at the Stony Brook Film Festival out on Long Island, the promise that filmmaker Douglas Horn showed with his short "Full Disclosure" is fulfilled with his first feature film.

Dryly funny, but not a workplace comedy like "Office Space" is...this looks more at the funny ennui that can happen when job seekers keep running into each other at job interviews. D.B. Sweeney and Missi Pyle start a friendship in those dull waiting rooms that leads into something more, but at the same time, great character turns by the other actors (like Kurtwood Smith) makes this an enjoyable ride. It also makes you hungry, as D.B. is a cook that is looking for something new to earn money at...but he can't stop making great sandwiches for everyone he meets.
