Many years ago, up-and-coming actors Miles Teller and Anna Kendrick were cast in Dylan McKidd’s “Get a Job,” which chronicles the ups and downs of finding a job when you’re a recent college graduate. Partnering two of the best young actors on the planet seemed like a solid choice at the time, as did rounding out the cast with the likes of Bryan Cranston, John Cho, Alison Brie and Marcia Gay Harden, among many others. The only problem: This was way back in 2012.
Flash forward four years, and it looks like “Get a Job” is finally seeing the light of day in theaters and on VOD this March, but it arrives with more of a “wait, what the heck?” thud than any kind of real anticipation. After all, if a movie with this much talent took four years to make it to theaters, how good can it really be? You can judge for yourself in the new trailer above.
The official synopsis reads: “Life after college graduation is not exactly going as planned for Will (Teller) and Jillian (Kendrick), who find themselves lost in a sea of increasingly strange jobs. But with help from their family (Cranston, who plays Teller’s father in the film), friends and coworkers, they soon discover that the most important (and hilarious) adventures are the ones that we don’t see coming.”
The film hits theaters and VOD on March 25.
