Storyline

When the GTX Corporation must cut jobs to improve the company's balance sheet during the 2010 recession, thousands of employees will take the hit, like Bobby Walker (Ben Affleck). Bobby learns the real life consequences of not having a job. Not only does he see a change to his family lifestyle, and the loss of his home, but also his feelings of self-worth. Written by Douglas Young (the-movie-guy)

Sorry you had to sell your Porsche...
9 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

You know this is going to be bad about 5 minutes into the film, when 5000 people and 2 divisions have been laid off, a manager whines at an executive meeting about the fact that she hasn't seen her kids in 2 weeks because of the extra work...

And it gets worse from there.

Affleck has to decide between paying the mortgage, detailing his Porsche and maintaining his country club membership so that he can hit balls in his suit. No joke. These are some of the tough decisions that he has to make.

But somehow, he doesn't have WIFI or his own phone so he has to use the company printer and tiny cubicle to search for a job because although he was making $160K plus, he is now rubbing shoulders with Joe Blue Collar.

This just doesn't work for me...
