The Promotion

2

Two men vie for the same job as a supermarket manager

Ahead of his return for another slice of American Pie, here’s Seann William Scott in the belated bow of this sporadically funny 2008 dramedy.

As supermarket worker Doug, he endures gangsta car-park loiterers, sexy banjo players and walking on hot coals in hopes of bagging his dream job as manager.

Problem is, John C. Reilly’s sweet-natured Canadian is going for the same gig.

No Stifler-sized belly laughs, but Promotion gets by on nudge-wink observations (shopworkers using the products) and Scott’s easy charm.
