A feature-length documentary about excelling in life at whatever you do, Ready, Set, Bag! follows contestants and their fervent supporters from around the U.S. as they get ready for the National Grocery Bagging competition in Las Vegas. Speed, accuracy and heart will determine who is best qualified to ask you, "Paper or plastic?" Written by
Stand out movie -- breezy and entertaining look at working in America.
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.
