Bobby Walker is living the proverbial American dream: great job, beautiful family, shiny Porsche in the garage. When corporate downsizing leaves him and co-workers Phil Woodward and Gene McClary jobless, the three men are forced to re-define their lives as men, husbands, and fathers. Bobby soon finds himself enduring enthusiastic life coaching, a job building houses for his brother-in-law that does not play to his executive skill set, and perhaps there is more to life.

Excellent film. All about how three guys deal with their loss of jobs, prestige, and even pride in the aftermath of the recession of 2007-2010.

Whoever is or has been in the same condition can easily connect with this movie, maybe not in the same manner but in a different 'light of gray'; inner-will is your strongest ally.

This is a story about a guy who loses his job, in the movie they tell you how to make a living if you lose your job, like you can do just about anything just to make a living.

O.K. film. There are probably plenty of folks out there with more interesting real-life stories.

This movie profiles the lives of several individuals and how it effected them as they go through corporate downsizing. Well played by a good cast of actors.

Realistic about individual lives after the 2008 crash. I don't think I could watch it, if my life had been one of the ones caught in this tsunami of change.

Talent gone to waste here. Corporate hotshots fall prey to our crumbling economy. Now here's an inspiring solution: Buy your own shipyard and put your former colleagues back to work. Duh.

Very realistic movie on corporate downsizing. I experienced the same thing in 09. My experience has taught me that it’s all about company profits and just making money.

Enjoyed this movie. Ben Affleck was especiallly good in the part he played. The Story shows what happens to a lot of people in the work force. One works for over 20 years at one Company and gives their all and gets no thanks for it.
