User Reviews: Having been in these shoes, I appreciated this movie even more.
This is a solidly entertaining and believable film about professional men (and women) who lose their identities as they lose their jobs in corporate America economic decline.
Some folks rebound, others can’t. I grew attached to the characters. Every performance was believable and tight.
I found myself rooting for success, even though it wasn’t always in the cards.
The ending wrapped everything up in a tidy ball, which I like.
Bottom line: Solid entertainment with very few explosions.
