Storyline

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 ...

Being Retrenched Stinks !
18 February 2009 | by (i1chocolat.blogspot.com) – See all my reviews

It's a vicious cycle, that God has set that every once in ten years the economy will simply collapsed; companies fold, people released from their duties aka fired, unemployment rises. Vicious, really vicious.

So imagine yourself, all the while having a job, and not minding that maybe one day the job you're having will ceased. Then, out of the blue, you were kicked out the front door and being told not to bother to come back tomorrow.

And imagine that you do not have any 'other skills' to fall back upon. You do not possess a certificate, you do not that Excel is actually a proprietary software made by Microsoft and not a soft drink, and that all the work experience you have do not mean a thing to the job you are applying for.

Enter the people who have been working for their whole lives only to learn that they no longer have the job. So they went to job interviews only to be told that they do not have what it takes to be chosen as employees.

This is what the whole film is about. About a chef who loses his café. About a girl who found out that her times spent in Bangladesh worth nothing in the eyes of the interviewees, as of an engineer who found out that he is either too old or too young to fit into any jobs.

Overall, this film is okay, not in a laugh-out-loud way, but rather it takes a jab at the current economic situations happening throughout the world. People losing jobs and seeking desperately new jobs to have enough to pay for the bills and food to fill their stomachs.

I didn't rate this because I do not think any rating is justifiable as I do not want to be seen as recommending this film if I rate it a ten, and to rate it a one do not mean that thing film is not worth a watch.
