There are two scenes in the movie where digital cameras have a cameo. In the first scene a modified version of a Kodak DC40 can be seen. The movie prop has a sand colored body and yellow status LEDs on the back whereas the real world DC40 is black and has none such LEDs. In the second scene a customer brings in what looks like an early Kodak DSLR. He complains about an overheated CPU and the fear to lose his images which is absolute nonsense of course. The camera he slams on the counter appears to be a movie prop as there is no real world version of this camera. It has a close resemblance to the integrated Kodak Hawkeye II however. See more »

Like Looking Through A Lens Backwards
14 September 2019 | by tesswyskoSee all my reviews

I forced myself to watch this whole movie, which felt like a mash up of 4 different stories, 4 planets revolving around John Larroquette, who was packed tighter than a stick of dynamite. The movie was odd and uncomfortable to watch, even though it had a stellar cast, the premise COULD have been GREAT, but the writers KILLED it by making everything so desperately awful by making it about people hopelessly in dead - end jobs that they can't get out of, but worse than that, they are oon Christmas Eve working in a tax write- off store being told to not sell because they don't want the numbers- AND THEY WORK ON COMMISSION!!! Plus their Christmas bonus is 1% of that nothing, and every year they don't get it until the last minute... BUT, THE WORST thing is that JL's old partner pulled something, stole the store pour from under him, THEN STOLE HIS WIFE!!! AND HE'S the boss doing this to them!!!

So this story MAINLY is about 2 older men selling cameras in a store where they're treated badly, knowing that everything's breaking down because digital cameras are taking over after 27 years in that store, their subsequent mental breakdowns...It just made me feel so SAD. That's NOT what movies should do.
