I really seemed to like this movie. It's a little quirky, and different from anything Neve Campbell has ever done. Also, Neve was voted best nude body 2008 for a movie scene.

Quirky and Hilarious Pleasure of a Film
Joey Cinque | New York, NY | 08/24/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"At first, I purchased "I Really Hate My Job" on dvd because Neve Campbell was in it. Neve Cambell, upon watching this movie, is only one of five great actresses in it. (She is the fortunate one on the cover though.) All of the actresses able and effectively carry their own weight and add a very special something to the roles which they wholeheartedly make their own.

The movie is very well-written, so much so that I found myself watching it again immediately after my first viewing wanting to catch the subtle nuances that I may have missed the first time around.

"I Really Hate My Job" centers around five women working in the same restaurant. It takes place on one night and gives ample attention to each of the characters.

Without giving much away, I need to say that if you like well-written movies and great acting, and want to be pleasurably surprised, then, by all means, get this movie.

SPOILER ALERT: Neve Campell, who previously refused to do a nude scene in "Wild Things" is featured topless at the end of this film."
Delightful and Interesting

"This is a delightful and interesting independent film, shot within the confines of a small restaurant in the district of Soho, in London, England. It's a look at the varied and diverse lives of the staff - the
manager, the bartender (Neve Campbell), the server, the cook and the dishwasher; all of whom happen to be women. As the film progresses, the viewers learns more about each of the women and their lives away from the restaurant.

A number of mini crises occur throughout the evening, which help propel the story along, including a late reservation made for actor Danny Huston and his party. One of the members of the Huston dinner party is actor Barry Morse (of "The Fugitive" TV series and author of Remember with Advantages) in his final film role. He plays the character of 'Georg' - an Eastern European percussionist.

I found the movie to be quite a lot of fun, touching in a few spots and funny in many others. There are standout performances from both Neve Campbell and Oana Pellea, who is a new discovery for me. She plays Rita, the dishwasher. Oana is an actress to look out for! Let me hasten to say that this movie is not full of special effects, car chases, and other such events - this is a character piece. And quite a good one, at that. I do recommend this film.
Not bad but could be better.

"Personally, I found this movie rather boring. It's got it's moments and there are a few laughs. Basically, it's about a typical night at a little restaurant in England and how each of the women deal with working there instead of whatever they really want to do. The main selling part is that Neve Campbell performs a really nice nude scene toward the end of the movie. I doubt that I would have watched this movie if it weren't for that scene and I'm not sure if I will watch it again."
