This Office flick checks out OK!
15 December 2012 | by (Miami, Fl) – See all my reviews

The "Price Check" is right, so come on down and check out this witty independent movie about the supermarket corporate world. Indie-Queen Parker Posey stars as Susan Felders, a hard-knox executive of a Supermarket chain who relocates from Los Angeles to Long Island to head up a struggling regional office of the chain. The employees at the regional office are first intimated by Susan's aggressive approach, so its not like they were "Desperately Seeking Susan" to head up their office. One of the employees is the centerpiece of "Price Check", and that would be the mild-mannered Long Island family man Pete Cozy. Pete is not exactly cozy with his employee situation in making chump change for a job he does not like but needs, but that changes when Susan comes in the picture. Susan takes an unorthodox liking to Pete, and even doubles his salary and gives him a promotion to Vice President. Pete gladly accepts due to his economic situation, even though what Pete profoundly wants is to go back into the music business. Susan eventually gets a bit too cozy with Pete, and that is when Pete goes down the wrong isle in "Price Check". Writer-Director Michael Walker did a modest labor effort in orchestrating & scribing "Price Check" at a low cost. It still boggles my mind why Parker Posey, who has starred in a plethora of independent films, has never reached movie stardom in studio pictures. Maybe she just loves the independent world where the filmmakers can get a bang our their buck in what they pay her to headline their films. The rest of the cast in "Price Check" did not check out too great with their performances including Eric Marbius as Pete Cozy. But maybe it was that compared to Posey, they were in the wrong thespian market. OK, time for a Pun Check! What that meant is that Posey is a much better actor than the rest of the cast of "Price Check". OK, its time for me to move on to another pun isle in my cheesy movie review market. But whenever you get a chance, check out "Price Check". **** Good
