Movie Review: “Unfinished Business”

3.5-Watertowers movie reviews(Fluger Schlagen)

Dan Trunkman (Vince Vaughn) has just been told that his pay will be cut 5%. Not agreeing to that, he decides to quit the firm and start his own business. Before he leaves, he offers a job to anyone who wants to join him.

Dan thinks Tim is joining him when in fact he was just fired for “being too old”.  Also following them is young, slow-witted, Mike Pancake (Dave Franco) who was just there for an interview.  The three misfits join forces and decide to meet at the local Dunkin Donuts to start the business.

One year later, they are still working out of Dunkin Donuts and have their first real prospect. What they find out after they fly to Portland, Oregon and then to Berlin, Germany is that they are being played by Jim Spinch (James Marsden) so he can get a better deal from Dan’s ex-employer.

Dirty business….

“Unfinished Business” is a terrifically fun, laugh-out-loud, cringe worthy movie. Rude and crude with nudity, sex, drinking, drugs, and nasty business practices. Through it all, it shows that starting a small business can be difficult, but, what matters most is loyalty and perseverance.

Vince Vaughn, Tom Wilkinson, and Dave Franco are perfectly cast. Don’t listen to the critics who, in my opinion, probably only watched the trailer. Had they watched the movie, or not been total prudes, it would have gotten much better reviews. Not for kids and not for those who are easily offended.

Go to IMDb for more information.  We watched this on Xfinity “free” movies.
