Storyline

Joel, the owner of an extract manufacturing plant, constantly finds himself in precarious situations that steadily worsen by the minute. First, his soon-to-be floor manager acquires a serious injury in a machine malfunctioning accident that subsequently endangers the wellbeing of his company. Second, his personal life doesn't fair much better when he takes the advice of his bartending friend Dean during a drug-induced brainstorming session on how to test his wife's faithfulness. Finally, compounding these catastrophes is new employee Cindy, who happens to be a scam artist intent on milking the company for all its worth. Now, Joel must attempt to piece his company and his marriage back together all while trying to figure out what he's really after in life. Written by The Massie Twins

Goofs

In the opening scene, the music store employees call the pickups on the Gibson guitar "humbuckings." Those type of pickups are either called "humbuckers" or "humbucking pickups," but not "humbuckings." Someone picky enough to fuss about the difference between "color" and "finish" would likely be the same way about pickups. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Guitar Salesman #2: Yeah, it's expensive, but it's sweet. Yeah.
Guitar Salesman #1: Are you familiar with Gibson humbucking pickups at all, or...
Cindy: No, I'm sorry. I actually don't play. It's for my dad for his 50th birthday.
Guitar Salesman #1: That's, that's really sweet.
Cindy: Yeah, my sisters and I are all chipping in, so...
Guitar Salesman #2: Your dad will love these humbuckings. I mean, they really kick ass.

nice
2 March 2015 | by VincentiuSee all my reviews

one of film about crazy situations from everyday life. crisis- in personal life and business- of an ordinary guy, interests of a seductive young woman, gallery of stupid/crazy/hilarious characters, a too good friend, an accident and a business in fragile balance. result - a series of scenes who seems be from known cultural areas but enough cool for amusing only. the great virtue - choice of cast, each of actors remains a nice surprise. a comedy like many others. interesting for the easy manner to identify yourself with Jason Bateman 's character and for Ben Affleck strange character who reminds a not rare type of friend.
