This movie is outstanding for pointing out (perhaps not intentionally) that smart, educated people can yet have tunnel vision. They ignore the advice of older, "less successful" people who grew up in the depression and post-depression 1930s, 40s and early 50s. These old grannies told us that we will be HAPPIER if we don't go into debt, if we live BELOW our means, and put something away for a rainy day.

How strange to ignore history and train yourself to expect only monetary success for your business and yourself for the rest of your life. Tunnel vision to the extreme! If this movie can awaken common sense in a few people and re-arrange their values, it will have done the world a service.

Excellent film. All about how three guys deal with their loss of jobs, prestige, and even pride in the aftermath of the recession of 2007-2010.

Whoever is or has been in the same condition can easily connect with this movie, maybe not in the same manner but in a different 'light of gray'; inner-will is your strongest ally.

This is a story about a guy who loses his job, in the movie they tell you how to make a living if you lose your job, like you can do just about anything just to make a living.

O.K. film. There are probably plenty of folks out there with more interesting real-life stories.

This movie profiles the lives of several individuals and how it effected them as they go through corporate downsizing. Well played by a good cast of actors.

Realistic about individual lives after the 2008 crash. I don't think I could watch it, if my life had been one of the ones caught in this tsunami of change.

Talent gone to waste here. Corporate hotshots fall prey to our crumbling economy. Now here's an inspiring solution: Buy your own shipyard and put your former colleagues back to work. Duh.

Very realistic movie on corporate downsizing. I experienced the same thing in 09. My experience has taught me that it’s all about company profits and just making money.
