Harrison Burke is a trader at a prestigious Wall Street investment bank who's living high on the hog until a round of downsizing renders him unemployed. Jobless and in debt, Burke moves back in with his parents in a quaint New Hampshire town, telling them that he's on vacation. Burke's descent into humility continues when he takes a job at his father's "Rocky Road" ice-cream truck business, competing for his old route with a teenager. Oh, and he discovers that his former girlfriend is now dating his old rival. Eventually, as he settles in, Burke rediscovers the charm of home and learns how alike fathers and sons can be. Written by
This cute little movie about a Wall Street big shot who is laid off goes back to his Podunk home town and reconnects with his small down girl friend. His father's ice cream business is struggling. There is some cute dialog and it's pleasant enough a movie. Mark Salling of Glee surprisingly looks the part of the uptight finance guy. Rebecca Dalton plays the love interest.
The message these days is it's good to trade Wall Street for Main Street. It may be sweet and romantic but have to wonder if it's the most practical message to be sending in all these movies. Maybe they need to make a movie about how there would be no Main Street without Wall Street.
