Stand out movie -- breezy and entertaining look at working in America.
11 December 2008 | by (Austin, TX) – See all my reviews

I saw this one in Austin just based on the title and the fact that a national bagging competition exists. Its been a while now and the movie has really stayed with me. It is a breezy and entertaining look at working full of great characters -- it even had a retro animation section. The bagging contest itself is a total blast but its getting to know the completely different lives of each bagger that cuts deeper. The filmmakers had a really nice way of showing you hard times or problems in relationships or people who are headed to better things with just a shot or a stray comment. It actually is a portrait of working hard and having dreams in America but it isn't heavy or "important." I expected it to come to town again but I haven't seen it anywhere since -- but I just looked up the trailer http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E-j5zQDV9Iw.
