Joe discovers that he is working with real superheroes, fighting real crime. With no superpowers, he struggles to find his place on the team, and at home. When the evil Lord Menace threatens the city, and his wife, this ordinary man must find extraordinary courage. 'Average Joe' must fight for his city and his marriage.

A man in need of a job applies for a Super Hero gig,
4 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This an awesome story about an "Average Joe" who needs a job and gets one as a super hero. The movie is set in San Antonio and follows the adventures of a super hero team doing their business in secret while looking for an addition to their elite, select squad. A mysterious evil comes back and challenges our heroes and heroines to one final dual. With disaster lurking, kidnappings and a mayor threatening to disband our anti evil doers is not enough for our "Average Joe" to step down. This is a unique story that will have you watching over and over again. With humor and a little drama "Now Hiring" will have you laughing a lot and crying a little.
