Storyline Heading
A hard-working small business owner and his two associates travel to Europe to close the most important deal of their lives. But what began as a routine business trip goes off the rails in every imaginable - and unimaginable - way, including unplanned stops at a massive sex fetish event and a global economic summit.
DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy - Like a lot of main star Vince Vaughn's films, this is an often raunchy comedy aimed at a young adult male audience. Fans of Tom Wilkinson may enjoy this much lighter change of pace for him. James Marsden and Sienna Miller only have very small roles. Constant language, sexual talk and content, and drug use make this definitely not for kids though there is a subplot involving youth bullying.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Below Average ...the film limps along, with no sense of comic timing, slapstick reality, or even spontaneity. It's so airless, and yet it feels heavy as lead. Vince Vaughn still has the ability to nearly save any moment he is in...

USA Today Full Review
Average ...a bland road-trip film that falls flat while heaping on the raunchiness. There is actually a heartwarming drama about a father and his kids at its heart, but Unfinished Business spends too much time on egregiously unfunny jokes involving sexual positions and Fifty Shades of Grey.

NY Post Full Review
Poor Mostly "Unfinished Business" is a tale of unfinished jokes....Vaughn can't save his doomed project by being "Vince Vaughn," the motormouthed charmer who is automatically funny if this is still 2005.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 20 moviegoers:
This movie certainly didn't draw much of an audience. From several showings, we were only able to collect 20 reviews.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: Two of the four males rated it very high, another one rated it "average" and the third one rated it "poor." The three female reviews are very mixed. One enjoyed it very much, one felt it was an "average" movie and one hated it.
ADULTS: Four of the seven males loved "Unfinished Business." Two more rated it "above average," which indicates they enjoyed it very much. The final rating was "average," which indicates they enjoyed it, at least to some degree. The female reviews aren't as high as the males. Half of them indicated they loved it but the other half only rated it an "average" movie (enjoyable but nothing special or memorable).


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Dan Trunkman (VINCE VAUGHN), a businessman in the apparently competitive field of mineral sales (and the specifically uninteresting trade of swarf, a metal residue) has had enough of playing second fiddle to his tough-as-nails boss, Chuck Portnoy (SIENNA MILLER). He quits the St. Louis-based Dynamic Systems and starts his own competing firm, Apex Select, taking with him the forced-to-retire numbers man, Timothy McWinters (TOM WILKINSON) and a young, positive-thinking, but slow-witted sales applicant Mike Pancake (DAVE FRANCO).

After a year and a half of non-success, a deal finally appears to be at hand with The Benjaminson Group for a massive sale. Dan plans an overnight trip to Portland, Maine, for a formal handshake with the firm's Bill Whilmsley (NICK FROST) to seal the deal. The sale - and the trip - couldn't come a day too soon. Dan's teenage son Paul (BRITTON SEAR), faces constant bullying, and his wife, Susan (JUNE DIANE RAPHAEL), wants to switch him and their young daughter Bess (ELLA ANDERSON) to an expensive private school. Tim could use the profits from the sale to fund a divorce from a long-dysfunctional marriage, and Mike, a resident of a house for special needs adults, wants to bring stories of his adventures to his buddies back home.

Upon their arrival in Portland, Dan is confronted by Chuck, who is intent on usurping Apex's arrangement, taking advantage of her less-than-ethical relationship with Whilmsley's boss, Jim Spinch (JAMES MARSDEN) to swing the deal towards Dynamic. But Dan convinces Spinch to let him and the Apex team present their pitch to the company's parent firm, Gelger AG, at its home office in Berlin, Germany, in an attempt to sway things back towards Apex.

Berlin, though, is packed with activity - Oktoberfest, the G8 Summit, Folsom Europe (a gay fetish festival) and the Berlin Marathon - making finding hotel space impossible: Timothy and Mike end up at a youth hostel filled with anti-business G8 protesters, while Dan unwittingly finds himself the subject of a "habitable work of art" version of a hotel room at a big museum. The team must overcome yet more outrageous obstacles to seal their deal. They must. . .

Go out there. Get it. Bring it home.
