When actress Annabelle Gurwitch was fired from a play by Woody Allen, she wondered how she would cope with being downsized by a cultural icon. Turning to friends in show business, she was assured she was not alone. Everyone she knew, from her rabbi to her gynecologist, had their own account of getting the boot. Featuring interviews with comedians, economists and regular working folks, and drawing on her hugely popular book, Fired! is a humorous look at downsizing in America. Written by Anonymous

Please don't ever let me watch this again!
1 June 2007 | by toddlorensinclairSee all my reviews

This is my first ever comment on a film and I was compelled by my conscience to sign up and post this as a penance for having watched this film.

I found nothing entertaining , remotely funny, or even watchable in this mess. In fact it made me feel like my existence must be pathetic for actually spending part of my time watching this drivel.

The only reason I attempted to watch it was the title and quite frankly I feel cheated. I could think of several interesting treatments of being fired but this one was the most disappointing of my movie watching experience (1287 to date). It makes my top ten worst films ever list at #1.

It really amazes me that people invested in this and didn't pull the plug before they lost all their money.

I'm kicking myself for watching as much of it as I did.
