Storyline

Mike works at his parents' motel in Kingman, population 27,000, on old Route 66. Sue sells art for a Baltimore firm to corporations for office walls. He takes one look at her from behind as she registers at the motel and determines to connect. He's sweet, but hapless, with no ambition other than spending time with her. She's enigmatic - rarely smiling, occasionally impulsive, committed to helping homeless people, feeling the clock tick after a breakup with a boyfriend who could have provided security. Is there any way he stands a chance with her? What can he offer? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Trivia

A Catholic priest in Portland, Oregon, received an invitation to read for a scene involving a priest, while filming occurred in that city. A Portland-based member of the casting department told him that writer/director Stephen Belber was unsatisfied with the readings and characterizations that auditioning actors had been giving for the very brief lines in the scene. The casting department told the priest they found him through a random Internet search, yet he happened to be a serious film buff (for instance, he has an IMDb account). He had even hoped that someday he might get a bit part as a priest in a film. But he declined the invitation to read for the part in Management (2008), after seeing the script of the scene in question and learning more about the film's storyline and about some of its other content. A modified version of the scene - without a priest - is in the film. See more »

The left-hand side of the screen shows there are 4 unread emails but there are actually 8 unread emails.

Pleasantly surprising
7 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In watching this film I felt the same way I did when I first saw Kevin Costner's "Fandango". This is a quirky film with quirky characters you can't help but love. Steve Zahn plays the lead with a subtle sweetness and innocence only he can pull off. He's one of those people who don't seem to have that built in stop button which prevents them from doing something extreme, yet even at his most extreme, you never seem to be intimidated by him. His lonely maintenance man working for his parents at their run-down Arizona motel, meets up with an inhibited, attractive travelling sales woman who is clearly trying to find her identity, but is too afraid of taking a chance. Jennifer Anniston proves time and time again she can handle any role to come her way, and understands this character. What I thought would be a run of the mill romantic comedy, turns out to be a thoughtful character study with it's share of tender moments.
