Will does a video for an accountant which shows him playing drums" in an office. Miles Teller plays a jazz drummer in Whiplash See more »
Will says he has created YouTube videos for years and is excited when one of his videos goes viral, but when he brings it up on his laptop, it is not YouTube, but a vaguely similar but completely generic site. This probably indicates that licensing the actual YouTube interface was too expensive for this film. See more »

It was funny and witty but the overall message makes no sense
I do find Miles Teller funny and entertaining. He's kind of this generation's Vince Vaughn especially describing him in this movie.
He plays Will, a 22 year old straight out of College who is the voice of this upcoming generation, but he's not saying much, which is saying a lot about this generation.
Teller heads up a weak ensemble cast of characters that poke fun of a generation of American children who were built up with false confidence as children and developed into privilege underachievers due to it. I did enjoy watching these kids get slap in the face for expecting everything just because they put their hand out for it.
The movie also attempts to be more diverse with the unemployment situation with supporting actor, Bryan Cranston playing Will's father, a man who got fired after over 20 years on the job and his attempts to find a new job in a world that thinks her too old. This little add in I did enjoy and added some surprising heart to this fickle frat boy comedy.
Speaking of fickle frat boy comedy. Anna Kendrick is on the poster of this movie as if her part had any sort of importance. The movie was very focus on young men trying to Get a Job and has Kendrick's character more as a supportive girlfriend, which I did not like, because she's the same age as the boys going through the same stuff and they are not treating her as a equal to the others, as far as the story goes.
But the biggest issue Get A Job has is that overall the movie misses the point it's trying to make. I don't know if they were force to go with a Hollywood formula or whatever, but they spend the whole movie telling us what's wrong with this generation and how unperfect they are only for their lives to become perfect. Or maybe I'm looking at this the wrong way and it's actually a very non-Hollywood formula, because a bunch of stuff happen without anyone learning anything in the end.
The movie does have a bunch of big laughs in it from some actors I enjoined seeing on the screen, but overall, Get A Job does not say much and leaves me hating that generation even more.
