Krystal White came up with the concept for A Most Suitable Applicant while stuck in LA traffic on her way to a cookie shop on Montana Avenue. See more »
It's funny cause it's true...
Work environment doesn't necessarily brings only pressure, deadlines and obstacles to be conquered; it also offers some friendship, camaraderie and even some nice view, and by that I mean the newcomers or veterans of a said place that happen to be extreme temptations and make us curious in getting to know better because depending on the task, if it's one that reduces your time for other endeavors, most of company you'll have is going to be from work. "A Most Suitable Applicant" presents that politically incorrect perspective, with writer/director Krystal White opting to use some fast humor that doesn't fail to amuse.
The most suitable applicant of the title is Johnny Baker (Johnny Wactor), a man with an impeccable resume that also happens to be extremely attractive to the recruiter (played by the film's director) interviewing him for an important position in a law's firm. In between mandatory work-related questions she always finds a way to know about Johnny's current relationship status much to the man's surprise and embarrassment in trying to impress her and get the job. There's a twist, sort of obvious, but it works fine.
And let's face it, despite sexual harassment being an important and recurring factor - the film touches that in a way - there's always room and time for co-workers getting involved with each other, from lasting relations to just a one-off, but problems may arise with those. Not to mention that if we look at a wider angle when it comes to how she's selecting to work because his resume is forgettable, only his looks are counting. The movie uses of those topics with care and humor with a character being bold and out of line in just trying to get the man of her dreams and using of some "power" to reach that goal. It was fun to watch even though it may look as if coming from a funny sketch you probably seen or imagined seeing in some comedy routine or series. 8/10
