Unfinished Business 2015
Review: The film follows businessman, Dan Trunkman (Vince Vaughn) on a quest to make his small business successful while finding balance with his family life. Dan gets tired of being pushed around by his boss Chuck Portnoy (Sienna Miller) and ventures off on his own to make a deal only to find he's in direct competition with her. Joined in his new venture are his colleagues Tim McWithers (Tom Wilkinson) who is laid off due to his age and basket case, Mike Pancake (Dave Franco). The trio go on a business trip to "get the handshake" from a new client and go on a race throughout Europe while attempting to thwart Chuck Portnoy in the process. Each of the three leads have a specific reason as to why their livelihood depends on getting the account - Dan to improve the lives of his children, Tim to escape an unhappy marriage and Mike to prove he isn't an incompetent idiot. The movie has its moments but sadly covers no new ground. Vince Vaughn is in typical form. It's not the content of what he does but it's all in his delivery. Tom Wilkinson is competent in his role while Dave Franco is effective for about 15 minutes. I felt as if the writers took Old School, mixed it with Euro Trip and then watered it down immensely. This is reportedly Vaughn's 5th box office bomb in a row. I really like him and I'm thankful he has True Detective Season 2 to give him a boost. I hope it helps him.
