Man about town
This film, was not at all what i expected it's boring, not a lot happens. I can't even think of a single scene I liked, It was just a painful watch.
Jack attends an Adult educational class and is given an assignment to write a journal for the week to find out who he is. Jack is a top holly wood agent, is married, has everything anyone could possible want or need but he's unhappy with himself. Jack is hoping by writing a journal he will be able to improve the person he is. Jacks wife admits to having an affair, which jack is not surprised by and he doesn't seem to care either. Jack gets beaten up pretty bad when someone breaks into his house, he's left needing a lot of dental work and in the dentist he loses it and starts shouting at everyone. Jacks journal was stolen by a reporter, which could reveal a lot about himself, his personal life and his work.

The casting is fine, Occasionally you may feel sympathy towards Jack but none of the other characters were very likable. I find that if I can connect with a character it makes the film more enjoyable.
Talk to My Agent
The Bloopers in a movie I always like, I didn't bother with any other bonus features as I didn't enjoy this film.
I would not recommend this movie, it is being donated to the charity shop first thing tomorrow morning. If you want background noise whilst doing house work then you could put this on and still know exactly whats happening. It's not a film you need to pay attention to. This was definitely not a film for me, and not at all what I had hoped for.
