Product Description

MANAGEMENT is a romantic comedy that chronicles a chance meeting between Mike Cranshaw (Steve Zahn) and Sue Claussen (Jennifer Aniston). When Sue checks into the roadside motel owned by Mike's parents in Arizona, what starts with a bottle of wine "compliments of MANAGEMENT" soon evolves into a multi-layered, cross-country journey of two people looking for a sense of purpose. Mike, an aimless dreamer, bets it all on a trip to Sue's workplace in Maryland only to find that she has no place for him in her carefully ordered life. Buttoned down and obsessed with making a difference in the world, Sue goes back to her yogurt mogul ex-boyfriend Jango (Woody Harrelson), who promises her a chance to head his charity operations. But, having found something worth fighting for, Mike pits his hopes against Sue's practicality, and the two embark on a twisted, bumpy, freeing journey to discover that their place in the world just might be together.

Tabloid darling Jennifer Aniston's personal life has been the source of endless fascination for those who are dismayed that the rich, famous, and beautiful actress just can't seem to find true love--and in Management, art imitates life, as the character she portrays can't settle on the right guy either, even without the paparazzi dogging her every move. Her Sue Claussen travels the country selling dreadful artwork to motels like the one she checks into in Kingman, Arizona, that's owned by Trish and Jerry (small but winning performances by Margo Martindale and Fred Ward). Son Mike (Steve Zahn), the likable dude who lives in the place and doubles as night manager, is immediately smitten, finagling his way into Sue's room with "complimentary" bottles of wine and champagne. Their talk is small and awkward; Mike isn't exactly Mr. Suave, but when, out of nowhere, he compliments her on her posterior, she inexplicably invites him to touch it. And so begins the relationship between his idealistic, aimless puppy dog and her prim, practical businesswoman. Sue's determined to make something more of herself, even if it means moving to Oregon to hook up with her ex-boyfriend, a former punk rocker who's now a rich but unhinged "yogurt mogul" (Woody Harrelson in the kind of role that's become all too typical for him). Meanwhile, Mike's content to follow her from one coast to the other until she recognizes what's really important in life. Not much of this is credible, and pretty much all of it is completely predictable. But that's hardly the point. Like most romantic comedies, Management relies on its stars to keep us interested, and while Zahn and Aniston's chemistry isn't exactly explosive, writer-director Stephen Belber keeps things simple and unpretentious, even throwing in positive messages about recycling and feeding the homeless without beating us over the head with them. --Sam Graham

This film was absolutely beautiful. It has that shy pre-emptiveness we expect from films which deal with tender topics such as love and approaching a girl. We all know that the chances of watching a Jennifer Aniston film and being completely bowled over are slim but this film does do that. I thought she was very good in the film and man, did the film have it's funny moments. Before watching this film, I saw Sunshine Cleaning and I quite liked the film. The one thing that is common between this film and Sunshine is Steve Zahn. Management, however, is the film that I liked more and I thought it had it's heart in the right place. At just 1 hour 20 minutes, this film never promises to conquer the world but it makes you go into guffaws.

This film has no flaws and unlike films like "You, Me and Dupree" this film never tries too hard to be cute. It's amazing how such films can be churned out even in 2009. I wish I had waited and seen this at the movies but that was not meant to be. I sneaked an advanced screening copy from some place and I'm sorry for that. There is wonderful chemistry between Zahn and Aniston. Girls, you will love this. Guys, you will not hate your girls for this. Genuine, free spirited and unabashed.

I watched the entire movie hoping that it would suddenly become good. That never really happened. While Steve Zahn's character grew into something sort of charming, and I did enjoy Woody Harrelson's brief appearance, the script just didn't seem fully developed. Jennifer Aniston's character was not likeable for me, and I think it could be the worst role of her career. She was mediocre, and the script didn't allow us to know her character enough to care about her. When I should have been hoping for Zahn and Aniston's characters to end up together - I found myself hoping that he would meet someone nice and forget about her. There were charming moments - none of them involving Aniston's character, but not enough to make me recommend this movie to anyone.

MANAGEMENT

STARRING: Steve Zahn, Jennifer Aniston, Woody Harrelson, Margo Martindale, James Hiroyuki Liao and Fred Ward

WRITTEN BY: Stephen Belber

DIRECTED BY: Stephen Belber

Rated: R
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: 15 May 2009

If you've seen the cover for Management, you may have thought to yourself, 'Wow, Steve Zahn looks a bit like a puppy dog.' If you did, you were right. He is a puppy with a real bad case of puppy love for Jennifer Aniston's character, Sue.

Zahn plays Mike who is kind of a slacker slash loaner slash something else. He never really did grow up but we love him nonetheless.

He works as a night-time manager at his parent's hotel called The Kingman Inn, in Kingman Arizona. His life is real blah, to say the least.

Then along comes Sue. She's an uptight art saleswoman from back east. She's in town for two nights selling some hotel paintings and happens to be staying at The Kingman Inn.

Mike is instantly smitten for her and she is almost repulsed by his unique awkwardness. I won't spoil for you how they meet and how funny it is, because if you haven't seen the trailers (like I hadn't) then it will be a nice little treat for you.

I don't know whether to credit the actors or the writer/director (Stephen Belber) for this brilliant scene; they probably all deserve the credit. It was shot so well and has so much to it for the small amount of dialogue that's used.

Eventually, Mike grows on Sue just a tad and she leaves to head back east. Mike thinks there was a way bigger connection than there actually was and acts on it. He takes all his money and buys a one way ticket across the country to go and surprise her at work.

The premise isn't new - dweeb falls for babe - babe finds him repulsive at first, but then grows to love his sincerity and ordinary ways - dweeb and babe ride off into the sunset having both grown into nice people. Yeah right!

It's a hard sell at the best of times, but "Management" just about pulls it off - and it does so because of excellent writing and the stunning acting capabilities of its two principal leads.

STEVE ZAHN plays the hapless, but sweetly naïve Mike Cranshaw who is living and working with his parents in their small motel "The Kingman Motor Inn" in the town of Kingman in Arizona (off Route 66). Mike's Mum Trish is effectively running the solid but uninspiring joint (a beautifully understated performance by MARGO MARTINDALE), while her says-little and does-even-less husband Jerry (FRED WARD at his effective best) seems stuck in a rut he doesn't know how to get out of.

Life at the Motel is routine and boring - especially for the friendless and womanless Mike. But just occasionally - he gets up enough courage to bring a bottle of plonk around to a lady guest in her chalet and try on his `complimentary' wine routine. It never works. But this time - Mike's heart gets more than it bargained for when it encounters the big-city, tight-suited Jennifer Aniston character Susan Claussen, who's in town from Baltimore to flog paintings to corporate clients. Planes to appointments, car rentals to accommodation and a laptop on the bedside, she is the very epitome of a young executive woman going places. Mike is the last person in the world Sue would consider dating, let alone spending a lifetime with...the idea is almost laughable to her.
