Travelling across-country, Sue Claussen checks into the Arizona roadside motel owned by the parents of Mike Cranshaw. Little does she know that what starts with a bottle of wine "compliments of MANAGEMENT" will soon evolve into a cross-country quest for love.
Aimless dreamer Mike bets it all by following Sue to her workplace in distant Maryland only to find she has no place for him in her carefully ordered life. Obsessed with making a difference in the world, Sue has returned to her ex-boyfriend, yogurt mogul Jango, with the promise of a chance to head up his charity operations.
But Mike, for the first time in his life, has found something worth fighting for. And he's ready to take the practical Sue on a twisted, bumpy, liberating journey of discovery in the hope that their place in the world might just be together.
I didn't expect to think much of this film, given its actors and premise. By the end I was actually smiling. Though Management starts out predictably cringe-worthy, with Mike trying to seduce a woman he has only just met (who is staying at his mum's motel) by offering her horrible tasting wine, it evolves through the course of the film and manages to surprise in a couple of places.
Management still isn't the sort of film I would really watch again or necessarily recommend, if you end up needing another movie to make up the five for five dollars at the video store, this one will probably go down well at a "girl's night in".
Random listing from 'Movies'...
As the result of the curse of a once-beautiful witch (Meryl Streep), a baker (James Corden) and his wife (Emily Blunt) are childless.
Three days before the rise of a blue moon, they venture into the forest to find the ingredients that will reverse the spell and restore the witch's beauty: a milk-white cow, hair as yellow as corn, a blood-red cape, and a slipper of gold.
During their journey, they meet Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel and Jack, each one on a quest to fulfill a wish.
