Goofs

When Will watches his viral video, he expands it to full screen then sits back to watch. As Skeezy D speaks without interruption, the next shot of the screen shows it is no longer a full-screen view even though Will was not shown leaning forward to press the ESC key. Similarly, when he gets excited about the number of views rising in real time (which YouTube does not do), he raises his arms above his head, but in the immediate next shot the laptop screen is displaying the comments section that was not visible in the previous shot, even though there's no way Will could have scrolled down while his hands were high in the air.

Get a job, get along in a job, drugs, video game addiction, young generation.
4 July 2016 | by Reno-RanganSee all my reviews

This film delayed its release for a couple of years due to the distribution issues. That's not it, the film is no good, the writing was terrible, but a bunch of good actors in it. It is about the recent college graduates who struggles to get a job, even if they do, finds hard to fit in. A very good theme, but they failed to draw a decent storyline for it. I think they knew the film won't get a good response, so they used 'distribution issue' card to hold it back, but now it's out and the result was as expected.

It should have been called a drama than the comedy, because right now it lacks from those two categories. It digs on the topics like workplace bullying, harassment, as well as the youngsters' addiction to drugs and video games. In one of the scenes it emotionally appeals when the father tries to pay the bill in a restaurant. They had the right content, but lost in the translation to the screen. There's no proper flow in the story, they had tried too much, at a time it all remained very plain.

This is the second film to release in this year for Anna Kendrick and both of them did no good for her, especially this film fell short from a long distance. Same goes for Miles Teller and Bryan Cranston. I hope they all forget it and come strong in their next projects. A few people might like it, but not me. I like quality contents where this film is not one. Thankfully it was short, but only thing is it was not sweet.

3/10
