I saw the movie on Netflix while browsing randomly and quite enjoyed it. Pete Cozy is a good guy who seems to have made some compromises around his career (really wanting to pursue music) but settles for an average job and then enters Susan his new boss and things change. The movie depicts very well how money can be seductive and change you; you can't help but feel bad for Pete in the beginning and perhaps even relate with him at many levels (esp if you have struggled in an industry where it really is tough get a break) and eventually settled for a regular 9 to 5. Parker Rosey is a delight as the ruthless new Boss. The transition of Pete and his wife, the change that money brings to them is interesting to watch. How i wish the movie would have ended with Pete pursuing a career in music leading a humble lifestyle but indeed it is sad how some of the external factors in our lives can shape our choices I thought it ended sadly :(
