WHAT'S IT ABOUT?
A group of recent college graduates (and Bryan Cranston) are faced with a declining job market. And, as the title suggests, set out to GET A JOB.
IS IT A GOOD MOVIE?
It's no wonder the powers that be held the release of GET A JOB, which was wrapped in 2012 and shelved until this year. It's not a good movie. How can a film with such a great cast be so bad, you ask? I mean, come on... you have pre-PITCH PERFECT Anna Kendrick, pre-THE SPECTACULAR NOW Miles Teller, and circa-BREAKING BAD Bryan Cranston, plus a collection of cameos from Marcia Gay Harden, Alison Brie, Jay Pharoah, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, John Cho, Marc Maron, and more. Well, leave it to the "satirical" movie's humorless script, and its timely, yet inappropriate-to-joke-about subject matter to ensure this one is buried by the studio. I just wonder what made them finally decide to release it this year?

I imagine the now-famous actors that starred in this project are the only reason this film finally saw the light of day. It's really puzzling that director Dylan Kidd somehow found a way to waste this talented cast, making the poster kids for "most likable actors working today" incredibly annoying and entitled. In a movie that is centered around characters finding jobs, shouldn't you be rooting for them? Spoiler alert: I wasn't.

Despite my intense criticism for this film, GET A JOB probably isn't the absolute worst film of the year; so far that distinction goes to MOTHER'S DAY. However, it deserves all of the disappointment hurled its way for botching what could have been a funny, well-cast film. By its IMDB page alone, GET A JOB should be a surefire hit, but based on poor execution and a lacking script, I suggest forgetting about this one, just like Lionsgate did for four years.
THE EXTRAS
Video Resume Outtakes: Unfunny "outtakes" of the actors reciting their resumes in-character. Yikes.

Where It All Began: The Cast Of GET A JOB: 7 minutes of EPK footage that shows interviews with the cast with some behind the scenes footage.
FINAL DIAGNOSIS
It's obvious the studio knew this movie wasn't going to be a hit and slapped it into Blu-Ray cases with as minimal an effort as possible. There are hardly any special features besides what we would expect to see in the electronic press kit (EPK). One positive we can all take solace in is its 82 minute runtime. But do yourself a favor and save your money for a good movie.
