Storyline

To save his job as an employment agent, former musician William (Willie K) must get a job for Merton (Eric Gilliom), a bumbling man-child who surfs every day in a place where there are no waves. Meanwhile, William's long-time girlfriend, Laura (Carolyn Omine), cooks up a half-baked scheme to drag her man to the altar. Fueling the fun is a colorful cast of islanders including a traffic cop (Augie T), a tourist (Jake Shimabukuro), and unemployed musician (Mick Fleetwood), ans cameos by Willie Nelson and Pat Simmons of the Doobie Brothers. Written/directed by Maui's Brian Kohne, Get A Job 'is a name droppers delight - a who's who of Hawaiian musicians and entertainers" (Hawaii Tribune-Herald) with a tropical soundtrack by the award-winning Barefoot Natives. It's a multi-cultural plate-lunch of surprise and hilarity certain to leave you smiling and hungry for more! Written by Cicala Filmworks

Belly laugh
14 May 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I loved this movie! It was a laugh out loud adventure. The characters reminded me of the 3 Stooges. If you want to have fun and laugh your butt off, get this movie! It's a classic comedy where you fall in love with the characters, and want more. The movie is filmed on beautiful Oahu in Hawaii, but it could be any where in the world because we all know a friend or relative with similar issues with employment. I loved the local music especially Jake Shimabukuri who is one of my favorite ukulele musicians. The morning after I watched the film I found myself laughing out loud about some of the funniest scenes, it put a real smile on my face. I would recommend this film to anyone that has had a hard day at work and wants to rid themselves of a stressful day, it will transport you to the island and to a wacky world.
