Crass and painfully unfunny satirical comedy shot four years ago. It's finally receiving a token theatrical release concurrent with being dumped into the video-on-demand sludge pile.
This long-shelved comedy proves a disappointing mix of onscreen talent, uneven social satire and juvenile humor.
Not only is this a movie without any guts, it doesn't have much of a brain either.
"Get a Job" is nothing special.
The imperfect work mired in storage all this time gets a well-deserved spin.
Clearly, the economy has given Get a Job a reason to be sour. But there's no excuse for being so sexist.
At its sloppy heart, this is meant to be an affirming movie, but the filmmakers could have taken a cue from one line of dialogue: "Don't just feel special. Be special."
It's hard work finding work these days, is it not? Not according to "Get a Job."
Not only is this ensemble unemployment comedy labored and witless, but it bears the unmistakable scars of a protracted and ultimately failed struggle in the editing room.
