Satirical comedy Get a Job sat on the shelf for four years – which explains why stars Miles Teller and Anna Kendrick look so fresh faced.
Recent college graduate Miles Teller is one of a generation of pampered millennial kids who have grown up being given prizes for losing. But he gets a rude awakening to the world of work when he takes a job making videos for a cutthroat executive placement firm. Meanwhile, his go-getting girlfriend (Anna Kendrick) and stoner pals grapple with employment problems of their own, as does his newly redundant dad (Bryan Cranston).
Satirical comedy Get a Job boasts a fine cast (Alison Brie and Marcia Gay Harden also make a mark in supporting roles) but the scattershot script misses the target more often than it hits and the crude humour often jars. Incidentally, the movie sat on the shelf for four years – which explains why Teller and Kendrick look so fresh faced.
