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 can understand why some people didn't like this: it is unusual, not your standard Rom Com. But here is what I loved about it:

- extremely well acted: the main characters have a sweetness and muddledness that evolves during the course of the movie, and does so in a way that is both moving and convincing. And, while at the beginning it was hard to believe that the two characters could grow close, by the end (or really the middle), it was very believable. I loved both Zahn and Aniston. and the supporting actors were funny (woody herrelson) and good (everyone).

- the story is romantic but not in a usual way. it's paced more slowly, which I liked a lot once I got used to it.

- it has a sweetness that derives from the Steve character (played by steve zahn), and actually from the other characters too.

if you like independent movies, with their unusual pacing, then definitely try this one.

Once you get past the first 1/3 of the film, it takes off. But, really, the opening gambit with the male lead being a schmuck and asking to touch the female lead's butt is just not comfortable to watch.

But, to semi-quote Demosthenes, "I is impossible to have a high and noble spirit when engaged in petty and mean employment." XZahn's character is stuck in a meaningless job with no passion for anything. His facial expressions seem more comfortable in a re-do of Dumb and Dumber. Aniston's character's job is not much better, but it pays more.

Once he gets to Washington State, it gets pretty funny. And note how Zahn changes his "look" after 6 months in a monastery...all without makeup or hair tricks. He projects a more solid person.

So, all in all, sweet but pretty flawed. Probably why it was $2.95 in a bin of cheap DVDs.

The movie is flawed. Why would a classy lady go with a dimwitted loser? This problem gets more vexing as the movie goes along. Nevertheless, the movie is thoughtfully made and Zahn as an actor is always wonderfully quirky. The movie is good entertainment, a lot better than the stuff made these days.

This is one of Jennifer annistons lesser known roles. She and Steve Zahn are a most unlikely romantic couple. This movie is a little gem in the morass of overhyped stuff that hits the markets these days. It's gentle, humorous and has unexpected moments.I guess it would be a chick flick since there are no car chases, but my husband has watched it three times.

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.

This hit or miss tale follows Jennifer Aniston, a serious business woman staying at a motel, and Steven Zahn (who plays the son of the parental owners of said motel). Boy sees girl and falls madly in love with her, especially after they make an awkward connection with sex and the like which prompts boy to follow girl to her place of residence. Girl freaks but finds it somewhat sweet but then complications ensue and boy loses girl to girl's ex boyfriend. Girl says ex boyfriend can help her with her career and we also know that she's there for the money after we see the place.

Throughout the whole tale it's made evident that boy needs to "grow up" in order to win the girl but the translation of him "growing up" seems to boil down to him acquiring assets. Or, you could read it as girl is only interested in a man with sizable assets. She ends up with her ex boyfriend (played by a punkish looking Woody Harreslon) and then things don't work out and boy eventually "finds himself" and goes out to see her with blind devotion becoming a charming stalker in the process (well, he was already like that actually). But girl doesn't seem to really think they have a chance until boy produces the deed to the motel that his parents gave him. Oh and she got to make all these mistakes at boy's expense and is even pregnant yet boy gives her this blind devotion even though it's going to be a ton of baggage that wasn't his fault. Niiiiice.

I would have been more pleased if they just put two lovers together who had a connection on many different levels. Putting two people together and making it evident that the girl would not consider the boy unless he had assets made me feel I was watching something from the Middle Ages. Okay, maybe just the Renaissance. Heh.
