Storyline

After losing his restaurant, chef CLAY MAGUIRE must start his career all over--at the bottom. Pushing forty with no "corporate skill-set", Clay enters the strange world of the Unemployable Interviewees of America. He soon meets others who share his plight--LIZ, who spent her youth traveling in the Peace Corp and now finds that experience digging wells in Bangladesh isn't exactly what corporate America is clamoring for; BOB a manufacturing engineer who lost his pension when the company went bust and now finds that 64 is too old to get hired as an administrative assistant and too young for a Wal-Mart greeter; and CHARLIE, who's job as a corporate hiring manager is so miserable that he only hires interviewees he hates because working at his company should be a form of punishment.

Not bad!
22 August 2011 | by Joseph OppenheimSee all my reviews

Not bad. A likable comedy with likable characters. You don't have to look very hard and it does also have a message.....a nice kind of message. I don't know why IMDb requires 10 lines in a review, especially when films like this really don't require that much. So, that is my review - a film that doesn't need a lot of commentary. OK, a guy likes to cook, but his restaurant doesn't make enough money to survive....so he looks for a job...any entry level job in what he thinks is what society expects of him.....and in the process meets a lot of people who just happen to like him and the food he gets a kick out of making for them. So, that's about it and you can probably guess the rest.
