Ever sat through one of those movies that you're hoping something's
going to happen - and it doesn't? The Promotion is one such movie.
Here's the uninspiring story of two guys - both intent on being
promoted within a corporate supermarket franchise.

That's the premise - short and sweet. Naturally there's some tension
between both men competing for the position, but overall the humor is
weak; the competitive nature of the applicants is unconvincing and the
story flat-lines a couple of minutes into the film.

John C. Reilly is the hopeful manager from Canada while the incumbent
is Seann William Scott.

There's nothing to it, nothing to expect and with only a hint of
infidelity or upheaval, it's best left out of the spotlight -
preferably collecting dust someplace in a $1 rental outlet...
