Plot Summary
When Woody Allen fires Annabelle Gurwitch from his off-Broadway play, she doesn't take it lying down. Her revenge, of sorts, is this documentary detailing her experience and giving other actors a forum to recount their own hilarious tales of getting served a pink slip. While Sarah Silverman and Fred Willard tell their off-the-wall tales about getting fired, Gurwitch enlarges the scope of her project by speaking with downsized auto workers in Michigan and former Labor Secretary Robert Reich.

  • Just when the film seems to be getting bogged down in "before I made it big" anecdotes -- around the time she and Andy Dick, who was once dismissed from a food-service gig, spend a day operating a mobile lunch stand -- Gurwitch wisely broadens her focus, interviewing ordinary victims of corporate "right-sizing," plant closings. show more

  • A pleasant, leisurely 71 minutes, frequently beguiling thanks to Gurwitch's soft-sell version of the urbane, Second City-esque female noodge. show more

  • While unlikely to set the documentary market afire, is entertaining enough. show more
