Did You Know?


Anna Kendrick plays a 22 years old girl while she was 27 when the movie was shot in 2012. See more »


Will says he has created YouTube videos for years and is excited when one of his videos goes viral, but when he brings it up on his laptop, it is not YouTube, but a vaguely similar but completely generic site. This probably indicates that licensing the actual YouTube interface was too expensive for this film. See more »

A 'slacker millennials' flick that actually makes millennials look good, and greedy employers look bad!

'GET A JOB': Four Stars (Out of Five)

A 'slacker millennials' comedy flick; about a group of recent college graduates, desperately trying to make it in the adult working class world. It stars Miles Teller, Bryan Cranston, Anna Kendrick, Nicholas Braun, Brandon T. Jackson, Christopher Mintz- Plasse, Marcia Gay Harden, Alison Brie, Bruce Davison and Jorge Garcia. The film was directed by Dylan Kidd, and written by first time screenwriters Kyle Pennekamp and Scott Turpel. It was filmed, and completed, four years prior to it's release (due to distribution problems); and it's received almost entirely negative reviews from critics as well. Despite these problems, I really enjoyed it!

Will Davis (Teller) recently graduated from college, and worked his ass off at a summer internship (for free), only to have his promised job position taken from him; by his lying greedy (would be) employers. His friends, and roommates, all struggle with their jobs as well; but his father (Cranston), and his girlfriend (Kendrick), nag him to find employment. Then the tables are turned, and his dad and gf are both out of work, while Will has a promising new job.

I don't understand the negative reviews at all! I think they're mostly due to the troubled (delayed) releasing of the film, which isn't the movie's fault, and then also the film's strong liberal message (that actually makes millennials look good, and greedy employers look bad). Most millennials are hard working, don't just want free stuff, and they actually have it a lot harder than most of their parents did (times are much tougher now); as this film nicely illustrates. Besides that, the movie is just fun to watch, upbeat (despite it's negative subject matter) and funny (at times). The performances are all good, the directing is decent, and it's just a fun time at the movies (with a positive message to boot)!
