Wow people really love those movies that share a name with the holidays.
When the movie title Working day appears, your first thought is that surely it has to be about the American holiday of the same name, right? Nope.
Then, seeing the release date (January 31, 2014), and that it is a Jason Reitman film, the mind begins to consider that it could be some kind of pun. Perhaps the film is literally about the day a pregnant woman gives birth, her day at work, so to speak.
Hmm, not again, it’s neither of those. It’s about, well, love? Maybe? Or how hard can life be? Some kind of story about second chances and how to beat your demons?
Somehow, with a convoluted story (a convicted murderer and a lonely divorcee mother of one meet and fall in love) and a title that is overkill to try and capture the essence of the film, this film never amounted to anything. that it is worth it. really remembering.
Except of course today, aka Labor Day, which has sent the 2014 drama up the charts and back into our hearts. Granted, considering many of us may not have even heard of the movie or knew it existed, going back to our hearts is a bit of a stretch. Still, the film has galloped more than 50 places on today’s streaming charts, to No. 35 overall, a 375 percent increase over its position just a day earlier.
Although the couple at the center of the story is played by British actress Kate Winslet and American heartthrob Josh Brolin, lab day It really isn’t worth working for, today or any day. It’s based on a novel of the same name, written by Joyce Maynard, and yes, it revolves around birth or at least the problems during and resulting from birth and babies, but that’s about it.
A little deeper look at the movie lets us know that Tobey Maguire is also in it, and he narrates the movie, plus we have JK Simmons and James Van Der Beek making cameo appearances. If that’s enough to get you going, or you just like to watch movies that resemble the date or holiday that’s currently taking place, then by all means dive in.
However, if the movie turns out to be a bit laborious, don’t say we didn’t warn you. The movie has a 54 percent audience score (albeit only a 34 percent Tomatometer score) on Rotten Tomatoes, if that too leads you one way or the other.
