The Promotion

Two guys. One job. No rules.
  • If you hold it like this the won't notice you smoking...

The low-key comedy is set in a supermarket, where a young recently-married man is keen to get a promotion to manage a new store. However things get complicated when a recovering addict Canadian also arrives, primed to get the same job. Their initial friendship soon devolves into a strife for the opening, as they both really need it. Despite the presence of Sean William Scott, this is not 'American Pie' type humour.


87 minutes, No persons under 16 (Language)
